Transliteration

From Conservapedia

Transliteration is the process of converting names and other words into another alphabet, without any attempt at translation.

The Japanese language has transliterated many English loan words:

  • apartment => a-pa-a-to
  • Pocket Monsters => po-ke-mo-n (Pokemon)

Some transliterations hardly change the pronunciation at all:

  • radio => ra-di-o (RAH DEE OH)
