   When I see your *qastah*, then I _read_ *qastah*. These latin letters
Okrand uses represent sounds he has given them. He could also have said "I"
is pronounced "P" and "A" is pronounced "R", but that would not have made
much sense :-)
   He used the letters that are almost the same as in english, and for the
other ones he used "special" letters. {H} is prounounced... well, just {H}.
And {h} is prounounced like english H. Capital {S} is s-sh, and lower case
{s} is - again - like english S.
   (I am pretty much familiar with the Morska dialect.)
