The Indian words are written with the Simple sounds of the English alphabet, which, in most eases, will enable the reader to pronounce them with sumcient accuracy. There are, however, sounds in the Ojebway which the English letters do not exactly convey, such as between b and p, and ch and j. Thus the Indian writer is liable to inter change one letter for the other when spelling the same word, and, consequently, that want of uni formity, always desirable, will sometimes appear. The above letters have, in most cases, their dis tinct sounds, according to English pronunciation.
