Q: Why the Pronunciation Key used is different than other English Dictionaries?
A: Although, most of the English dictionaries use pronunciation keys that are similar, they are still not the same. Each have their own variations. Some of the Marathi pronunciations are very different than English hence need it's own pronunciation key.

Q: Why the Pronunciation Key used is not similar to any other Marathi Writing software?
A: Most of the commercial or non-commercial Marathi writing software (keyboard mapping or transliterian) is designed to help write Marathi using English. Before adopting this pronunciation key, we carefully studied the available schemes from these software. We found that they are not adequate to represent spoken Marathi pronunciation.
