Alphabet

The alphabet is given in Devanagari and in its Latin transcription. The transcription follows ISO 15919 guidelines; the one difference is that व is transcripted as w rather than v as w is closer to the Persian phonology. The IPA is given in brackets for those transcriptions which differ from their IPA symbols.
