↑ अ आ इ The affricates are correctly written with tie-bars: [, t͡s] [, t͡ʃ] [. As the tie-bars display incorrectly with some fonts, they are often omitted. However, these affricates contrast with the plosive-fricative sequences d͡ʒ] [, ts] [ and tʃ] [. Usually the spelling of the Romanian word indicates the pronunciation, with the affricates spelled dʒ] ț, c, g, with one letter, and the sequences ts, tș, dj, with two, but this is not always the case, especially in personal names.
↑ Not a separate phoneme, but an allophone of /n/ before velars.
↑ Intervocalic /r/ may be pronounced as a flap [. ɾ]
↑ अ आ इ The Romanian [e], [o] and [ø] are in fact realized as mid vowels: [e̞], [o̞], [ø̞]. In phonetic transcriptions, however, the lowering diacritic is usually omitted for simplicity.
↑ अ आ The approximants /j/ and /w/ can appear before and after vowels, including the diphthongs /e̯a/ and /o̯a/, in almost any combination.
