2.1.1. Wiring for sound of the asymmetrical syllabic signs

Using more than one hundred words from the contemporary Macedonian language, all 13 asymmetrical signs were wired for sound with corresponding consonants. They are:

the asymmetrical signs P[r] and J[j] in today's and in the ancient Macedonian script have the same form and the same sound. According to their written form the remaining asymmetrical signs are mutually similar, and in their pronunanciation, too, for example the asymmetrical signs Ж[zh], З[z], Ѕ[dz], С[s], Ц[ts], Ч[tch], Ш[sh], and Шт[sht].

Each of these 13 consonants on the writing surface, can be written using 8 dispositions and can denote syllables with 8 consonants, as in the example of the sign for the consonant J[j].

All 8 positions of writing are identified in the text, which means they have been wired for sound with all 6 active vowels in today's Slavic languages and the long forms of the vowels O[?] and E[?]which have been preserved in the contemporary Slovenian language, as well as in some of the dialects of the Macedonian language.

All forms of the asymmetrical signs with their wiring for sounds are presented in the following table.
