Do not even try to explain *all* cases with your rules. If you really have a lot of irregularities, one level of rules with at most one level of subrules is enough (if you don't need too many subrules). In most cases, just one main rule and treat the rest as irregular is enough. I did that in Maggel, although often some irregularities can be explained with subrules themselves divided in subsubrules, etc... Sometimes it's just useless to try to categorise all the patterns you find. Christophe. Take your life as a movie: do not let anybody else play the leading role.
