|Comment #1 on 'Script Description' by waltersde on 2015-11-12 11:00:24
In the standard variety, there are four tones
Toneme Numbered Romanized as syllable final
high level 55 /t/
mid high 44 /x/
mid tone 33 [not written]
low falling 21 /p/
There are some CV combinations that do not have a mid tone character in the syllabary.
As of early 2015, several columns were added to the standardized syllabary to provide additional coverage for other varieties of spoken Yi.
