The Tibetan script as used here is an abugida or alphasyllabary, meaning that, rather than notating consonants and vowels separately (as in the case of a true alphabet) a consonant and vowel are paired. In this case, the consonant (or symbol notating the lack of a consonant) is written, then the following vowel is written above or below.

EX: ཀ (k) + ི (i) = ཀི (ki)

EX: འ (da na zunsna) + ུ (u) = འུ (u)

  • ”da na zunsna” means “There is no consonant.”

In this system, the first letter in a diphthong beginning with i or u is treated as a consonant.

EX: ཡོ (io)

This method of writing lojban also notates a significant difference between primary stress and weak/secondary stress in a syllable, often using entirely different letters based on the degree of stress.
