Thank you for the help, additionaly I did not find the transliteration for Vav as a Vowel and Vav as a Consonant?
Also what is the transliteration for a Chireq?

Information about the transliteration scheme can be found at this URL:
Since Hebrew is most often written without vowels, it is a natural thing for
list members to exclude vowels in their transliterations. Transliterations
are from left-to-right in the common English order.
(M or (AM = "am" ×¢× (people)
A is for "patach"
MLK or MELEK = "melekh" ××× (king, ruler)
E is for "segol"
MLK or MFLAK = "malakh" ×Ö¸×Ö·×Ö° (he ruled, reigned, etc.)
F is for "qamats"
SPR or S"PER = "sefer" ×¡×¤×¨ (book, scroll)
" is for "tsere"
All of this and more is covered on the URL above.
