RESPONDER'S REBID AFTER 1H 1NT AND A 2C/2D REBID FROM OPENER

passWeak, with a strong preference for opener's second suit over hearts.
New suit (minor)6-card suit, weak
2HFalse preference to hearts, to play. May or may not indicate genuine preference. Doesn't guarantee a trump fit, but might instead merely be choosing the longer of opener's two suits.
2SIntermediate raise in either or both of partner's suits. Opener can ask which with a relay of 2NT.
2NTNatural, 11-12 points (or an upgraded ten). Shows a hand that had the values but not the shape for an immediate 2NT response.
Raise either of partner's suits to the three levelPre-emptive and to play, unless the "2S to show an intermediate raise" option has been taken away by the opponents' intervention.
Jump shift to 3 of an unbid minor6-card suit, 10-ish points, invitational. Non-forcing.
3SGame-forcing splinter in either of partner's suits. Opener can ask which it is with a relay of 4C (if that wasn't their second suit) or 3NT (if it was, which unfortunately takes away the natural 3NT to play that's still possible if 4C is the relay).
