The basic braille range mostly conforms with international norms, with the exception of sounds which do not occur in Georgian, such as *f (reassigned in Georgian to თ t’), and *q, which is used for ჩ ch’ rather than ყ q. The assignment of to ჩ ch’ is reminiscent of Russian Braille, as is one or two other letters ( for შ sh is widespread in Eastern Europe), but most of the extended-letter assignments are unique to Georgian.
