[In this transliteraiion * is somewhat softer than the z of zeal, but not so soft as the * in pleasure. Pronounce 8 at
in this, not like the *h in «fc0, which is represented by *k The letters * and * (above the line) are very faintly pro-
nonncedf and are, indeed* hardly audible. The consonant preceding them ihould be pronounced as if doubled.

Pronounce a as the a in &tf, £as the e in met. The letter o (without any diacritical mark) represents the sound of the
first o in promote, aod it the o in the French word votrt as compared with v6tre. It should he caref ally distinguished from

Other consonants and vowels are pronounced as in Standard Bengali."]
