Ligatures : a few more examples


They are not included in the excerpt of exercises that I've got - for some of them, just because they're too simple! I make them available nevertheless, either because they are quite common, or because I find them interesting or beautiful.

Last, here are a few ligatures containing an addition dot. The note involved is thus binary, and it's followed (nearly) immediately by the smaller complementary value:

sspt  sspt  
sspt I said nearly immediately... a small syncope!
sspt Lack of space... one has to find some trick!
lptbbb Heading dot is much less usual.
sptspt The final gem that I even didn't expect to come upon!
