Adventures in Languages that don't use a Latin-based Alphabet

Editorial inquiry leads to giving myself a crash course on the correct romanization of Farsi—or rather one word in Farsi. (Wikipedia, ho!)

I've banged my brain before trying to grok romanization standards: Chinese mostly—both pinyin and Wade-Giles—but also some Japanese rōmaji. And y'know, I really, really like languages that use a Latin-based alphabet.

French is nice. I took French in college. Maybe I should write a nice little French fairy tale next.
