Triphone: Three consecutive vowels in Pitman's
Shorthand are called a triphone (i.e. a diphthong plus
another vowel). I have removed the word "triphthong" in
various pages and blogs.
In Linguistics, "triphthong" is
the correct word for 3 vowels in succession, and a "triphone"
means 3 phonemes in succession (not necessarily vowels), so
usage in that subject is different from the terminology in
Pitman's Shorthand books.

The singular "computer" uses
doubling, because the diphthong sign can be joined to it.
The medial W sign in
"someone" can be omitted, but writing it in here prevents
misreading as "something else".
