    Abstract

    The definitive transliteration guide for anyone who transliterates words, names, titles, or text from a non-Roman script into the Roman script. Provides the most up to date ALA-LC transliteration schemes for even obscure scripts. Includes 61 transliteration tables covering more than 145 languages and dialects written in non-Roman scripts. The first single source for accurate, up to date LC romanization practice. Supersedes all ALA-LC romanization tables previously issued. Organized for practical use.

  • This book contains short entries on about a hundred languages. Articles are ordered alphabetically, and each has a standard structure for ease of reference, including:

    • General Historical and Sociolinguistic Introduction
    • Writing System
    • Sound System
    • Grammatical System
    • Sample scan from a publication

    The book has an Appendix of Scripts. Each script entry is generally a chart of the characters as well as a transliteration. Most of the script entries have a small amount of explanatory text.

  • Pickers allow you to quickly create phrases in a script by clicking on Unicode characters arranged in a way that aids their identification. The phrase appears at the bottom of the screen and you can easily cut and paste the result into your own document. They're written in XHTML with a small amount of JavaScript.

    This picker includes all the characters in the Mongolian script description in Wikipedia. The picker does not include Sibe, Todo or Manchu characters.

  • This research project aims to provide an comprehensive historical account on the evolution of the printed Mongolian character, and to offer practice-oriented guidance for the design and development of new digital fonts for the traditional Mongolian script (or Uyghuro-Mongol script) and its variants. The site intends to be the platform of the research project and presents findings and practical guidance supported by theoretical analysis, publicly available to scholars of Mongolian language and culture, to historians of print, to professional (typeface) designers, software developers, librarians, linguists, academics, and to all those who have an interest in non-Latin typography and typeface design.

  • Richard Ishida has created a chart to show which features (for example, combining characters, ligatures, case, baseline etc.) apply to a number of writing systems. The characteristics described are based on the exemplar character lists in the CLDR. The chart is intended to give a basic idea of which writing systems require what types of feature support.

  • A character picker is a tool that allows users to quickly create phrases in a script by clicking on Unicode characters which have been arranged in a way that aids their identification. This is one such tool, which covers a number of scripts including Arabic, Bengali, Devanagari, Gurmukhi, Hebrew, Lao, Tamil, and Thai, amongst others. The user selects the required script from a panel on the right, and the characters for that script are presented to them, from which they can select the characters they need. As characters are selected, the phrase appears at the bottom of the screen and can be cut and pasted into other documents.
    Character pickers are likely to be most useful to those who don't know a script well enough to use the native keyboard. The arrangement of characters also makes it much more useable than a regular character map utility.
