Missing letters in Romanian?

I just found this site, and I like it a lot! However, one of the languages I tried is Romanian, and it appears that several letters in their alphabet are completely missing from the word list. Specifically, ăĂ â îÎ șȘ țȚ are nowhere to be found. Here is an illustrative sample text from omniglot.com: « Toate ființele umane se nasc libere și egale în demnitate și în drepturi. Ele sunt înzestrate cu rațiune și conștiință și trebuie să se comporte unele față de altele în spiritul fraternității. » One can work around this gap via a custom list, but unless I'm missing something, I think the Romanian word list should be updated. Thanks! By the way, be careful: ș (comma; Mac unicode option-p) is not the same letter as ş (cedilla; Mac unicode option-c), etc., but some sites use cedillas instead of commas under s and t because the cedilla is generally more available on keyboard layouts. Also note that Romanian ă (Mac unicode option-b) is not the same as ǎ (Mac unicode option-v).

Hello,

You are absolutely right, the top 200 definitely needs an update. I see no reason to remove the diacritics in Romanian and to keep them in all other languages. Moreover, the words used are quite long / difficult and are not the 200 most common. The wordlist should be the real top 200 with diacritics.

However, you will notice that the diacritics are present in the advanced Romanian typing test. Besides, there is the same problem in Albanian: the top 1000 has the diacritics but not the top 200.

If the admin agrees, here is a list that could be used:

The wordlist has been updated, it might take up to 1 hour for the cache to update to the new words.

Awesome!

Just a little mistake in the list: the word viaţa (with cedilla) should be replaced by viața (with comma).

Thanks. ;)

You shouldn't have done this. Many type without the diacritics and their speed decreases with them.
