I'm not going to do any work on it in the next few weeks, because I'm quite busy at the moment, but I foresee a fairly major stumbling-block being the transcription of names, and in particular how to represent the vowels. Obviously there won't be a one-to-one mapping with English-language vowels anyway, but I want to do the best I can.
I am thinking that
- Sita = ·𐑕𐑰𐑑𐑨, that is, the vowels in tree and cat, not the vowel in ago
- Rama = ·𐑮𐑭𐑥𐑨, that is, the vowels in mast (in the RP pronunciation) and cat
- Hanuman = ·𐑣𐑨𐑯𐑵𐑥𐑨𐑯, that is, the vowels in hand, soup, and man. Or is the final vowel more like the a in mast?
