@Aryamanarora Can I ask where you got the spelling from? I'm just curious as this doesn't follow the usual Tibetan script rules. Wyang (talk) 12:43, 11 October 2017 (UTC)

@Wyang: I had to figure out the spelling as the source I found (Northeast Indian Linguistics, a wonderful reference) only gives IPA transcription. Honestly for such marginalized languages it is difficult to find sources in their "native" script. —Aryaman (मुझसे बात करो) 18:59, 11 October 2017 (UTC)
@Aryamanarora: Ah thanks. Which issue of North East Indian Linguistics is it, and what is the article? I was reading Hyslop's 2011 thesis A Grammar of Kurtop, and it seems that in the Uchen orthography for Kurtop, the syllables are separated by a ‹› (tsheg), and there should also be tone marks.

Indeed, I would recommend that you not guess spellings in a script you cannot read. Unfortunately, -sche has also been guilty of this in Tibetan-script languages, including Kurtop. On a somewhat unrelated note, is there any way we can get ཆཱོ to display correctly? —Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 07:21, 12 October 2017 (UTC)
I'll stick to Devanagari script languages, sorry for the issues I caused. I'll have to check on my computer for the issue and chapter name. —Aryaman (मुझसे बात करो) 10:16, 12 October 2017 (UTC)
Only if we apply the font Jomolhari-ID, as done by {{lang|bo}} (ཆཱོ), it seems. Wyang (talk) 07:30, 12 October 2017 (UTC)
