If there isn't a visual difference here, how could there be a lexical
difference? Imagine the age before computers. All you have to go on is
what's on the page. There isn't an inherent order in those elements; they
could have been written by the scribe in any order. If they appear the
same, you can't assign different meanings -- except by some extra-syllabic
informational context... right?
