I’ve very recently completed the Simplified manual, and have been practicing by writing out daily news updates from the Nytimes. Since it’s all that the news is about these days, I’ve run into the word quarantine quite a bit. The simplified dictionary has the word ending with a t-n stroke. Based on the manual, I thought that the t-n stroke was only for unaccented vowels, whereas I pronounce quarantine ending with “teen.” What gives?
I’ve seen this in several other words that I can’t remember at the moment, with a T-N or D-N standing in for things that aren’t ten, den, tain, etc. Relatedly, maybe I’ve just been blind, but I can’t remember seeing the word “done” in the simplified manual, (or in the dictionary) but it seems to be the D-N blended stroke in older versions, which isn’t one of the vowels that would be used in this blend.
Thanks for any clarification you all can give!
