15 The th and mp consonant clusters

15.1 -th

To write the -TH consonant cluster as in path and month, use the *T stroke

PA*T

path path path path

MOPB*T

month month month month

The two most common exceptions are north and south, which are written by TPHORT and SOUT, while the capitalized North and South can be written with the \(*\), TPHO*RT, and SO*UT.

15.2 -mp

To write the -MP consonant cluster as in camp and stump, use the *PL stoke.

KA*PL

camp camp camp camp

STU*PL

stump stump stump stump

Alternatively, the -FRP stroke can also be used (and is the default stroke for -MP in some theories).

For almost all -m and -mp ending words, the concept is valid (lamb vs lamp, limb vs limp). However, plum gets the \(*\) stroke (PHR*UPL) while plumb is PHRUPL and plump is either PHRUFRP or PHRUPL -P.
