I am not sure which blend to use in some words. For example "Clinton" (the city) could be written C-L-I-NT-N or C-L-I-N-TN. My book shows the second but I'd like to know why. Also "abandon" is written A-B-A-N-DN but my instinct is to write it as A-B-A-ND-N. The simplified text gives no reasoning as to why they choose one blend over another.
Also I'd like to know the correct way to write "it'd" and "that'd". For "it'd" I can think of two ways: IT+TED or I+TED with an apostrphe. For "That'd" I think of THAT+TED or THAT+D with an apostrphe. The simplified text gives no mention of these contractions at all.
Thanks for your help!
