Also letters and represent = * and @ * respectively and F, Q, W, X and Z are not called to use.

In Saskta, consonants represented with a stroke below e.g. as in k cannot be pronounced except in conjunction with a vowel marked * e.g. k (k) + A (a) = k (ka).

For easy pronunciation while reading or reciting, in some publications, the break-up of the transliteration is based on the phonetic sounds and not on the basis of Saskta grammer rules or words.
