Lipton’s Journal/February 10, 1955/561
On the vowels, I’m beginning to feel other things. The hard vowels, I, ay, EEEE, Ohhh, (which is midway between hard and soft) and OOOOOOO seem to have more relation to giving, to society, to I as social actor. And the soft vowels are more from the er. Of course this is enormously complex and I haven’t begun to feel it yet, but slowly I make progress.
