Re "without the plosive"... I thought the intention was that if a language hasn't got a certain sound, to leave it out rather than providing one which is similar but "wrong". Italians have to distinguish between dj and j, and between dz and z; if their language misleads them to pronounce j as dj because of the examples {g}, then perhaps {g} is not a good example. mi'e filip

filip, as far as I do understand the very purpose of these charts, they are to give foreign students of Lojban (without any further knowledge of other languages than their native tongue) an idea of Lojban phonology. If this is correct, it has to be preferred to give any hint possible to reach that goal, hasn't it? --.aulun.

Page reformatted. Added some more example for the more difficult cases ('j,x,'',y) that have no correspondence to Italian sounds. Also redone z --remod
