I would like to ask this "hobby" question about his Current shorthand. Many a times I have been reading his book and trying to systematize his teaching (in my head only) since I am attracted to idea of reformed English alphabet.

If there are people on this forum that have dropped an eye on his shorthand can you please tell me how one is suppose to differentiate when a hairlike connecting stroke is representing a vowel "e" and when it is used just to connect high and mid level consonants or vowels?

I am interpreting every stroke that I see and this short hairlike stroke is making me confused.
But as I said, this one is just a "hobby" question.
