Etymologies

Sorry, no etymologies found.

Examples

  • The nicest looking (IMHO) transliteration of Russian uses Czech haceks instead sh, ch, zh, e-umlaut (as in Russian) and e-grave (or circumflex) for the 'hard' e (with e being soft).

  • I could do that my HTML skills extend that far, but the whole point of transliteration is to enable English-speakers to know what the words sound like, and I'm not willing to limit my audience to those who can decipher haceks.

  • Reminds me a little of the Turkish alphabet crossed with Slavic there are umlauts, cedillas and haceks, I've never seen all three in a single alphabet before
