Mikhail wrote:Difference between е and э is that the consonant before is palatized or not. This can be shown on this English transliteration example :
man = мэн
men = мен
How do you get man from мэн? In all transliteration schemes I've seen, э is e, and e is je or ye... If your trying to show palitalisation in English, as far as I'm aware, we do not employ it...
