@Atitarev Here's a class-4 verb needing manual translit. Also смягчить, can you think of any others? Benwing2 (talk) 08:49, 20 December 2015 (UTC)

That would be смягчить. I don't object to using "xč" to transliterate any occurrences of легч/лёгч, мягч but I won't insist on this.--Anatoli T. (обсудить/вклад) 09:08, 20 December 2015 (UTC)
@Atitarev Did you mean a different verb? Benwing2 (talk) 09:10, 20 December 2015 (UTC)
Yes, смягчить, sorry.--Anatoli T. (обсудить/вклад) 09:38, 20 December 2015 (UTC)
Maybe it's easier to automate similar to легк/лёгк, мягк?--Anatoli T. (обсудить/вклад) 09:41, 20 December 2015 (UTC)
@Atitarev Is every instance of гч pronounced consistently with х? This includes легче, мягче, облегчать, облегчить, облегчение, смягчать, смягчить, смягчение, also отягчать and отягчить if it exists. Alternatively, I could just make легч/лёгч, мягч have хч in it, and handle отягчать manually if needed. Benwing2 (talk) 12:13, 20 December 2015 (UTC)
Only applies to roots легч/лёгч, мягч but less straightforward than легк/лёгк, мягк. (легк/лёгк, мягк have invariably [x]. With гч group, [x] is standard and common but [k] is possible. We can adopt the same approach as with selected гк roots, always use [x] in transliterations and pronunciations). For other cases of the devoiced "г", e.g. отягчать, [x] would be less standard or dialectal. --Anatoli T. (обсудить/вклад) 12:27, 20 December 2015 (UTC)
@Atitarev, Cinemantique, Wikitiki89 OK, assuming no objections I'll go ahead and do this. Benwing2 (talk) 12:38, 20 December 2015 (UTC)
Just to be clear, [x] for легч/лёгч, мягч only. --Anatoli T. (обсудить/вклад) 12:49, 20 December 2015 (UTC)
@Benwing2 I saw your edits in the translit module. It only applies to letter г, never к. Letter к is never pronounced as [x]. --Anatoli T. (обсудить/вклад) 00:48, 21 December 2015 (UTC)

Never mind. I have misread your edit. We'll need to update WT:RU TR with the latest changes later. --Anatoli T. (обсудить/вклад) 01:11, 21 December 2015 (UTC)
