DJ

Wow! I just found that the English language DOES have the "dj" sound of TPNN, and IPA has a symbol for it:

ʒ = pleasure, vision

( IPA symbols/sounds here: http://www.antimoon.com/how/pronunc-soundsipa.htm )

So here are some words from TPNN, in IPA:

Shao'Kehn = ʃaʊ-ken
Djao'Kain = ʒaʊ-keɪn
djai = ʒeɪ
djair = ʒeəʳ
Shyao'Shyo = ʃjaʊ-ʃjoʊ
Shoi'kiin = ʃɔɪ-ki:n
shyeh'hyeh'gahr [ʃje-hje-gɑ:r] (word for "element.")

Only thing I can't find is a symbol that represents the throat-clearing sound I borrowed from Arabic for TPNN. Oh, and a symbol for the cross between R and L that appears sometimes in TPNN.

An X? Seriously? They couldn't have put a squiggly line over it, or drawn it weird like the almost-3 above? Oy vey.

Not like the x ever added anything to the equation by itself, phonetically.
