Distorted Yekgirtu alphabit[edit]

Yekgirtu alphabet is distorted and completely wrong, these cause more missleading, someone has changed it without any rational justificaiton. The original table should be restored.

character E27A[edit]

Does anyone have an idea of what the character U+E27A in the 1929 alphabet is? I believe this is a Private Use Character, and consequently, will not show up consistently. If this character does not exist in Unicode, then a graphic would be preferable to PUA. languagegeek (talk) 20:34, 16 September 2008 (UTC)

It's Unicode 5.1, released in May.--Üñţïf̣ļëŗ (see also:ә? Ә!) 20:47, 16 September 2008 (UTC)

I'm talking about the letter between p and q in the table for 1929.  . It's showing up on my Mac OSX Tiger computer as "fallback font" E27A AND E67A. These are Private Use Code points (E000–F8FF). Which are the correct Unicode 5.1 codepoints so I can put in the correct characters? languagegeek (talk) 04:34, 12 October 2008 (UTC)

Values missing in Kurmanji/Yekgirtú table[edit]

Does anyone know the IPA values for Yekgirtú i and Yekgirtú ù ? languagegeek (talk) 20:38, 16 September 2008 (UTC)

Some letters are missing in the Sorani alphabet[edit]

I have been comparing the Sorani alphabet with the table at the bottom of the page, and some letters are missing in each of them.

First of all, these following letters have been included in the table, but not in the alphabet under the "Sorani Alphabet" section: ﮦ ڶ ڔ ڒ ۊ Why are these five letters not in the Sorani alphabet but in the table that compares the three alphabets?

Furthermore, the following three letters are included in the Sorani alphabet, but not in the table at the bottom: ﺋ ﺡ ﻉ

It would be great if someone could correct this or give an explanation for this. CoverMyIP (talk) 10:42, 11 October 2008 (UTC)

Origin of the Yekgirtú alphabet[edit]

To me, this looks more like an transliteration invented with the aim of making the language easier to read by anglophones. Could it be that this so-called "unified" script was developed by the American forces in Iraq? Who has information on the origin of Yekgirtú? -- (talk) 10:07, 14 March 2009 (UTC)

This article could really use a table comparing the three alphabets[edit]

'Nuff said. Iamvered (talk) 05:00, 5 October 2009 (UTC)

IPA, please[edit]

E: The "A" in Accept and "e" in Test
Ê: the "e" in Hell or "Ai" in Air

I'd replace this list with IPA but I don't know the difference between the vowels of test and hell. —Tamfang (talk) 18:26, 7 November 2010 (UTC)
