Gikuyu orthography[edit]

There is some discrepancy in different sources regarding pronounciation of Gikuyu letters. In the wiki article, there are /ɸ θ ʃ ɲdʒ (nj)/ in table and for the first three there no spelling indicated. Here is a fuller table with "c" for /ʃ/, "b" for /β/, "th" for /ð/ and "nj" for /ɲɟ/. And accordingly there are no /ɸ θ ɲdʒ/. So what is more correct? --Koryakov Yuri (talk) 12:01, 26 September 2008 (UTC)

And the last question: what sound is indicated with "ch" like in Michuki or Achera? --Koryakov Yuri (talk) 12:07, 26 September 2008 (UTC)

Gikuyu language template[edit]
