## Domiphones II

### Keith Slater & Trey Jones

Traditional Dominosa is a puzzle game that requires you to pair numbers corresponding to the faces of dominoes. You are presented with a rectangular grid of numbers. Each number must be paired with one of its vertical or horizontal neighbors. As in a set of dominoes, each numerical value pairs exactly once with each other numerical value. See the original “Domiphones and Dominasals” (*SpecGram* CLXXXV.1) for a simple example if you are unfamiliar with the genre.

Naturally, *SpecGram*’s version of the puzzle involves some linguistics-related twists. Rather than boring and obvious numerals, we use symbols that linguists can enjoy and feel comfortable with. The next two puzzles, both *Domiphones,* are a little trickier than the previous pair. Instead of only having five different symbols, these puzzles each have five different *groups* of symbols. It’s up to you to discover the relevant groupings in order to solve the puzzles.
