Module:Avst-translit

Definition from Wiktionary, the free dictionary
Jump to: navigation, search

This module will transliterate text in the Avestan script. It is used to transliterate Avestan (ae).

The module should preferably not be called directly from templates or other modules. To use it from a template, use {{xlit}}. Within a module, use Module:languages#Language:transliterate.

For testcases, see Module:Avst-translit/testcases.

Functions[edit]
