There needs to be more ti words plz
These are the only ones that sound like “ch” from the Macquarie dictionary, the rest mostly sound like “sh” and can be found here: https://www.spelfabet.com.au/spelling-lists/sorted-by-sound/sh/ti-as-in-lotion
Thankyou so much for this comment! I based my original system on a nearly-20-year-old-copy of the Macquarie Dictionary, but according to my more recent copy of the Australian Oxford Dictionary, you’re absolutely right, and of course once I thought about this from a coarticulation point of view it makes perfect sense, we don’t have /s/ immediately followed by /sh/. I’ve updated the list accordingly, and feel free to tell me about anything else you think needs updating. All the best, Alison
