FW: Isolated Forms (was: FVS Assignment MisMatch)

I am looking back through our thread on Isolates.
What do you mean by TBC below in the last paragraph?

I believe the 'letters' O and U differ only in pronunciation.  Likewise,
the 'letters' OE and UE differ only in pronunciation.  The obvious
method is to find representative words for the pairs of vowels and show
them with the vowels.  That won't work well when space is limited, as on
a keyboard.

The letters A and E also have identical isolated forms.  It is
convenient that the commoner isolated (TBC) and initial forms of A are
different to the forms for E.
