Obvious warning

Don’t use this romanization as is. Have it converted to regular TNIL by a tool.


Unaccented TNIL graphemes get assigned to themselves, with the notable exception of ẓ j. Then ç becomes q, and any remaining accented grapheme is represented by capitalizing the base letter (e.g., č C).

bilabial labio-dental alveolar (alveolo-)palatal velar/uvular glottal
stop p b t d q k g '
fricative f v T D s z S Z x R h
affricate c j C J
nasal m n N
approximant w j
lateral l
tap r
lat. fric. L


Vowels are spelled like in TNIL, with diaereses converted to majuscule letters (ä → A). Stress is indicated by following the vowel character with a semicolon ;.
