-'' or ``
-'' is used to link related phrases. For example, 日本語で (``in Japanese'') should be romanized nihongode, but is often romanized nihongo-de. Unfortunately, this is indistinguishable from nihongoude. Therefore, this server neither accepts nor generates romaji with this ``linking dash''.
n'' could be vague, as in ``
na'' being な or んあ, use a single quote to force the latter. Therefore, something like ``
kenichi'' will be interpreted as けにち while ``
ken'ichi'' will be interpreted as けんいち.
