The thing is that this rule in the SWF is pretty bogus, and is there
(in my opinion) simply because of a confusion amongst KK users about
the meaning of double consonants as George intended them on the one
hand and as KK users actually realize them on the other.
In UC, UCR, and KS, vowels in polysyllables are short (if they are not
we mark them in KS). So for us, it makes no difference whether we
write <falladow> or <faladow>: both are pronounced *identically* in KS.
Is there a morphological reason for choosing fall- vs fal-?
