4.5, 2nd example

Comment: 
There are a number of problems with the use of the orthography attribute in this example for Japanese:


The kana label is incorrect - it should say hira, since this is hiragana, not katakana.


There is currently no label available for the extremely common form of Japanese words that mixes both kanji and hiragana, eg. 混じる 'to mix' (contains one kanji and two hiragana characters).


Is nɪhɒŋɒ an accurate phonemic/phonetic transcription?
