Wiktionary:Kannada transliteration

These are the rules concerning transliteration in Kannada entries.

General rules edit

  • The transliteration scheme described here is the "scientific" transliteration scheme. It is used for all Kannada words on the English Wiktionary.
  • Transliterations should be entirely in lowercase; don't attempt to apply English capitalization rules to Kannada transliterations.
  • Diacritics remain basically intact; Kannada dots above and below, and lines above, become Latin dots above and below, and lines above.
  • If you are not sure of the right transliteration, you can use {{attention|kn}} to attract the attention of a more experienced Kannada editor.
