  • Data for Cuman comes from the Codex Cumanicus, a medieval glossary and grammar written by Mediterranean traders to enable trade with the Cumans. Transcription of Cuman sounds is very irregular; I have attempted to reconstruct the original sound, but will likely need to revisit this first attempt.
  • Sounds not found in Latin are occasionally transcribed with superscripts. These have been rendered using CSS here, so there may be some display issues.
