  1. It’s a wonderful effort that you have been making relentlessly for the Assamese language… All my best wishes …

    I would like to suggest that you do not provide transliteration rules for juktakhars. If we provide mappings for only the alphabet (including all the special ones) the scheme will be simpler and more likely to get accepted. My main argument for this is that it is not possible to get phonetic for everything, so why make an effort for the juktakhars?
    The less the number of mappings, the less will be the objections, and so more the chances of acceptance. Further, computer transliteration becomes easier (in this mobile world, it is the conversion from latin to assamese script automaticallythat will really help, especially the youth). Disambiguation can be handled by using a dictionary (which ta?).

    xiwasaagarar smriti kenekuwa?
    vs
    xiwasaagarar xmriti kenekuwa?

    We will easily get used to the latter. Besides, some people pronounce the place as sibsaagar, some as xibasaagar, some as xiwasaagar. We leave it to people the matter of pronunciation.

    za instead of ja is controversial! Upper assam / lower assam divide! I
    think the “standard” assamese of modern Xiwasaagar (as opposed to Bronson’s) will agree to ja!

    • শ,ষ, স are pronounced as x when they are non-clusters. But as a cluster they pronounced as s, (e. i. raastra, swasthya, smriti, etc.). Again when they form a cluster as with the ra in its first position, they sound as x. For example darxan, (দৰ্শন), karxan (কৰ্ষণ), etc.
