- Note the following spelling guidelines for inputting Romaji. Long vowels (held for two counts) : a=ah, i=ii, u=uu, e=ei, o=oh. Eg. ‘okahsan’ (mother) is correct (for older books only the long o = o and the long u = u). Combinations: use ‘sho’ rather than ‘shyo’ or ‘syo’. Double consonants are doubled. Eg. ‘bokkai’ (pastoring) is correct
