...and as TS (the S with caron) in the Finnish transliteration.
(Finnish uses S-caron and Z-caron but only to transliterate Cyrillic,
and also in certain loanwords that contain the same "shound", such as
"sakki" (s-caron tehere) for "chess") When caron is not available,
I think the allowed fallback is TSH.
