Although we want to alternate hands, we don’t want to cross hands. Typing p with the left hand, and then r with the right hand — with any speed — would be awkward.
A “hook” is a situation where two or more letters are typed with the same hand. (The term comes from carilloneurship.) In our models, when a hook occurs, the second and any subsequent letters will be bolded. So, for example, in the combination “pre,” the p and r are typed with the right hand, and then the e with the left.
In today’s practice, be sure to type any bolded letter with the same hand as the one before. Take your time.
