e ... i ... e ... i ... aarrghh!
Studying the five vowel eights. Working through them about fifty at a time, which gets me through the list in a week with a day off to recover. Fifty a day is about my limit right now, then my eyes roll back in my head and my brain (I suspect) looks like this. ^
It certainly feels all thorny and snarled when I'm done for the day.
Haven't put them in Zyzzyva's cardbox yet, since I'm not interested in having a truckload of them show up in the cardbox quiz at one time. (Can we spell "thorny and snarled" boys and girls?) I do wonder though, why words like OEDEMATA stick and yet I have trouble spotting the ones that are S hooks on five vowel sevens.
