Dear friends,

Found these two words as names for cucumber in Assamese:

তিয়ঁহ, তিঁহু

Let me please know their English transliterations.

Dinesh ji
Your fonts did not come though in my mail, but I have found following 

Cucumis sativus      Tiyoh / Tihu

I hope you know this for Assamese names

Gurcharan ji,

Since these are unicode characters, it could be possible that changing settings of "Character Encoding" in your browser to "Unicode (UTF-8)" may help render the Assamese characters.
Suggesting everyone to do this one-time exercise ... else Indic scripts would not display.

Many thanks Gurcharan ji for the Assamese names and the useful link.

Many thanks to both of them.
