Hey, I'm having some weird outputs from HTS, and I was hoping you could explain why it's happening, so I can figure out how to avoid these sorts of problems. Here's the rules and variables in question:
Æ = æː æ æ̀ː æ̀ æːˈ æˈ
EA = æːa æa æ̀ːa æ̀ a æːˈa æˈa
EA > Æ
If it's relevant, there are also variables E and A, which follow the same schema as EA and Æ, except they have "e" and "a" in place of "æ(a)".
It is changing all the combinations with æ that I expect it to. However, [a] is becoming [æːˈ], which It shouldn't do. For instance, "lang" becoming "læːˈng" and "manij" becoming "mæːˈnij". Am I missing something obvious here?
