    Orthography essentially the same, but people are lazy and don't always
    put all the dots (vowel markings) in "accurately" or at all. Most
    people reading the dictionary would be OK with the word even with two
    identical marks on the Shin/Sin letter: there's only one possible way
    to read the word anyhow.
