@Wyang Err, how is this breaking? —Aryaman (मुझसे बात करो) 20:36, 18 September 2017 (UTC)

@Aryamanarora Err, I've fixed the breaking. Now someone needs to fix the failing... Wyang (talk) 22:35, 18 September 2017 (UTC)

Tone and inherent vowel deletion[edit]

@AryamanA, @DerekWinters, @Dubomanab Hi we discussed about Sylheti tones. The earlier aspirated characters and h were replaced by tones.

So comparing with Old Assamese:
ghoro = gór (🏠)
pohoro = foór (💡 light)
ghORa = gúRa (🐎)
bhato = bát (🍚)
hati = átti (🐘)
etc
So can we add the tone diacritics on the vowels after the aspirated consonants and ’ for the "h" (example: ꠀ’ꠔ (át, hand)).
The 2nd request is the inherent vowel deletion which is probably same as Hindi.
For example,
ꠝꠉꠎ, ꠝꠉꠎꠧ = mogoz (brain), mogzo (in brain)
ꠃꠙꠞ, ꠃꠙꠞꠞ = ufor (up), ufror (of up)
(compare Assamese: mogoz, mogozot, üpor, üporor)
Can you apply that rule? Msasag (talk) 13:38, 27 June 2018 (UTC)
@Msasag But also, there are words like aor - áor, and other ones that I cannot exactly predict. DerekWinters (talk) 23:10, 28 June 2018 (UTC)
I added several tone testcases. DerekWinters (talk) 23:52, 28 June 2018 (UTC)

@DerekWinters We will spell those words as ꠀ’ꠅꠞ (a’or), here ’ is used as the tone marker. Msasag (talk) 02:27, 29 June 2018 (UTC)

@Msasag: I will try to implement some of this. This is strangely similar to Punjabi... —AryamanA (मुझसे बात करेंयोगदान) 02:36, 29 June 2018 (UTC)
