ugly? Like, not sorted or something?
I'm generally not a fan of how VCCV reclists break the list into a million chunks. Additionally, this list has a weird combination of features that make it both efficient and inefficient at the same time- a carry over from the English list. It's also difficult to read, which is ridiculous for a language like Esperanto.
I can see how thats bad. I find it hard to read list without a "-" or "_" between the sounds.
IMO CVVC > VCCV. VCCV has unnecessary many oto settings for "transition V C" and how -CC sounds often... awkward. And specially recordings CV_CVC is just big nope for me, it's very "forceful" to pronounce.
You will get easier in CVVC and sounds as good as or better than VCCV. With CVVC, you can write longer moras just like a VCV. So fast and easy
VCCV isn't even meant to be a style of reclist, yet people are seeing it that way and writing lists based off the original english one. Things that work for english won't necessarily transfer well to other langauges.
Maybe people are calling their reclists "VCCV" to get more attention, even if it's just cvvc.
Separate names with a comma.
