JPage 4^2-  Second paragraph of the Note at the head of tfae specimen. I find that
my statement that, in the phonetic transcription, the sound of sfi in shell is represented
by sh has been widely misunderstood. Many readers have assumed tiiat by ttiis state-
ment I implied that, in the phonetic transcription sh represented the sound of the
Bengali % which, in transliteration, is represented by sk. Nothing was iurtaer iiom my
intention. The phonetic transcription is entirely independent of any system of
transliteration, and aims at representing English sounds by EngJisli letters, in the
phonetic transcription, sh represents the English sonnd of the English letters in the
English word shell, and nothing more. The sound represented by it corresponds most
nearly to that of the Bengali *T, which, in transliteration, is represented by  It has
nothing whatever to do with the sound of the Bengali cerebral *. The same remarks
apply to the spelling in other phonetic transcriptions (pp. 168, 175, 178, 207, 235, 251t
254, 262, 267, 273, 276, 296, 308, 307, 310, 3M, 318), and, especially, to that in the
column for Bengali Colloquial (Phonetic Transcription) on pp. 352if.
