Letters in parentheses generally serve for alternate ways of writing; for example, dⱥẁz (two) can be written as daew:z if you don't want to copy and paste characters every single time. Letters may also be substituted for aesthetic purposes, for example, rⱥq (hot) can be written as rⱥkh even though you can find Q on a normal keyboard.

Letters with an asterisk are very rare, and another letter is usually used instead.
