    Default Words in Tables

    Hello!

    Can you tell me how can i write words in a table?
    let it to be a phonetical table with regard to English and another language. A column for the word, a second one for the transliteration, and a third column for a second language word

    I know that i should write the first column in capital letters, but is it applied to the third column also?

    Again, is transiliteration written in capitals?

    I wish you can help me
    Thank you!

    If by this you mean phonetic or phonemic transcription, there are no capital letters in these systems.

    I wish hope you can help me.

    Thank you!

    But I did not refer to transcription. I am referring here to transliteration:

    Source language sound through target lanaguage letters. Also, I refer to the first letter of a word.

    It's your table. Make it however you like. When you list the word in English, use regular rules of capitalization.
