Module:inc-mas-translit

This module will transliterate Middle Assamese language text. It is also used to transliterate Early Assamese.

The module should preferably not be called directly from templates or other modules. To use it from a template, use {{xlit}}. Within a module, use Module:languages#Language:transliterate.

For testcases, see Module:inc-mas-translit/testcases.
