28. Order of Writing. - The consonant-stems of words are always written before writing any of the vowels, and the vowel-signs are afterwards placed to the stems.
29. One Consonant and One Vowel. - When a word is composed of one consonant-sound and one vowel-sound, it is written as follows:
1. Write the proper consonant-stem.
2. Write the sign of the vowel at the side of the consonant-stem in the following manner:
I. If the vowel is heard after the consonant, place its sign to the right of an upright or slanting stem, and below a horizontal stem; thus,—
II. If the vowel is heard before the consonant, place its sign to the left of an upright or slanting stem, and above a horizontal stem; thus,—
Remark. In writing the examples given in the preceding paragraph, it is not meant that each stem shall be made twice, once without the vowel, and then a second time with the vowel; but in the case of each pair of illustrations, the first shows the stem before it is vocalized, and the second shows the same stem after the vowel-sign has been written to it.
