    Additional NotesThe letters <b d v g j z> denote tones, not the consonant sounds they are typically associated with. The tones they mark are /a˥/, /a˩/, /a˧˥/, /a˧˩/, /a̤/, and /a̰/, respectively. The mid tone /a˧/ is unmarked.
    Ngmẹev Tshigz permits a large number of diphthongs; these diphthongs are spelled as the corresponding sequence of constituent vowels.
    The epenthetic glottal stop appended to the beginning of words otherwise beginning with a vowel is not written.
