I have a question regarding to word "coniferous." Per the old EBAE rules, the "con" contraction was NOT used in the word "coniferous." When we got the NLS-UEB version of the Instruction Manual, this was one of the questions I asked with regard to UEB. With the bridging of prefixes, and a disregard as to pronunciation, I was told the con contraction WAS used in the word "coniferous" and it was shown as contracted in the teacher key. I now have a distance-learning student on lesson 7 and in looking at the updated teacher key, it shows the word brailled without the con contracted. Can you tell me which way is correct? Rule?
