Aeetlrcreejl wrote:In the past, substituting [k_h] for /x/, [g_h] for /G/, and dropping /h/ was common and older loanwords were loaned that way, but in newer loanwords the original Lorošae phonemes are kept. Example: Jinnic "kawro" (originally khawro, Lorošae xawro), but Jinnic fouhız- (Lorošae fouhız-, the dash signifies it's a root and not a word).
By the way, please tell me if I used brackets correctly up there.
