Re: Our Transliteration System

I was wondering what "9" and "2" stand for in this transliteration system? smile

Re: Our Transliteration System

9 stands for ? it is a sound like q from the back of the throat not found in roman letters so we write it with a 9 (maybe you know it?)

2 stands for ? it is a 'glottal stop' or a pause in the middle of a word or sometimes at the end.

other numbers you may find are 3 for ? and 5 for ? though most here use kh instead of 5

hope that helps!!
