Thompinization of other languages

The Thompinian scripting system came first for crypting Spanish an then extended for crypting other languages including English and Swedish.

Usually in Thompinization (writing with the Thompinian script system), letter by letter or diagraph by diagraph transcription is followed in bases of orthography, not phonetics, but phonetics in a language are used for deciding which codes are used.  If a diagraph has an special value in a language, would probably be translated into a special sign.

Thompinized English is based in Romanized English where: all <a> are translated into <a>, (long /eI/ or short /A/), but <ay> and <ai> diagraphs with /eI/ sound are spelled <ai>.  All <b> are writen <b>, all <c> are written <c> (even when the sound is /s/), but <ch> is written <chh> (in "Loch", or "Chrome", or whenever <ch> sounds /x/ or /k/ transcription is <ch>, i.e.  "loch" or "chi square law", "chi-square law").

Capitalization of a word is market by : at the begining of the word: thus "Thompson" becomes :thompson.  If all the letter are to be capitalized, the capitalization symbol is doubled: ::thompson is "THOMPSON", if a letter in the middle of a word is to be capitalized, the ( symbol is used, thus "ThompSon" becomes :thomp(son.  Composed names are usally marked this way:

"Carlos Eugenio Thompson Pinzˇn" becomes
   :carlos(eugenio :thompson :pinzon

(note that Spanish Thompinization is done in "eu": eu and not eu, because the sound is /Ew/ and not /ju/).

"Carlos Eugenio" is a composed given name, therefor transcribed
   :carlos(eugenio.
"Thompson" and "Pinzˇn" are individual family names, thus
   :thompson(pinzon
would be incorrect.
