The Mandailing Sound System

An h with two dashes above it, which are called tompi — load carried on the back, is used to express a k. In South Mandailing, s in conjunction with the tompi is used to express tj. The tj is pronounced almost as the ch in child but with less sibilance so that, like dj (2) and nj (7 Obs. 8), it is an indivisible consonant in which the j of the transcription is not audible as a separate sound, e.g., tjatjing and not tjatjing.
