I was thinking the otherday about what would happen if you reduced the standard inter-letter gap when sending a Morse encoded word. As the dots-and-dashes merged into one blob, the resultant stream could be interpretted ambiguously.
For instance, the word "WRAP", represented in merged Morse (as we all know) is ".--.-..-.--."
This stream could also be interpretted as the word "EQUATE", or the word "ACETATE", or the word "ANTING"
I wrote some code to process the entire English language dictionary to find all sequences of Morse that form more than one legitimate English word.
The results are very interesting. I showed a few colleagues and they said I should write a blog posting and share it wider, so here it is, enjoy!http://www.datagenetics.com/blog/march42012/index.html
