Vocalization

[voh-kuh-lahyz]
Vocalization may refer to:

Vocalisation (also called vowelisation or diacritisation) serves an important role in Arabic and Hebrew to show the correct pronunciation, as normally the Arabic and the Hebrew alphabets don't supply enough information for readers. Similarly, Chinese and Japanese languages use pinyin or zhuyin (Chinese) and furigana (small hiragana symbols) (Japanese) for the same purpose - a phonetic guide.
