Chechen words - in Latin alphabet[edit]

PLEASE, DON'T REMOVE IT. I'll work on these lists... Böri (talk) 09:14, 10 March 2013 (UTC)
How are things going there? The transliteration above is very non-standard. Here's a suggested transliteration method: WT:CE TR. Also, watch out for the "palochka" letter, often replaced with "1" (number one) or Roman "I" in Cyrillic. Capital letter is "Ӏ", lower case is "ӏ". --Anatoli (обсудить/вклад) 05:12, 18 March 2013 (UTC)
I have reworked the list in standard orthography as the Latin one didn't seem to follow any rules. I think it was simply "eye-dialect". The Latin forms on this page seem to be essentially (phonemic) IPA, and I'm working on that too, though it will take some time.

However, the transliteration automatism that is used here has its problems too. For example, it doesn't get the "ккх" in доккха right. "ккх", or /qː/ is a geminate or tense consonant phoneme inherited from Proto-Nakh; it is .not. a sequence of /k/ and /q/. Mar1Qh 18:08, 10 May 2018 (UTC)

@Mar1Qh, if "ккх" = /qː/, then what about "кхкх"? —Stephen (Talk) 03:48, 12 May 2018 (UTC)
That's /q.q/, probably. It may occur in compound words when not separated by a hyphen, but I can't think of any examples. It's rare, and not pronounced differently from /qː/. Mar1Qh 10:34, 12 May 2018 (UTC)
