I was attempting to enter שָׂפָה into a morph search using transliteration. This should be Saphah. 

But, the correct lemma (or any possibilities beginning with Sin) does not show until all letters have been entered. It does appear if one writes "Shap" - this is incorrect - "sh" ought never suggest words beginning with Sin.

Beginning with "sh" also brings up suggestions for Samech - very strange.

Beginning with "Ts" produces nothing (even though it should suggest words beginning with Tsade).

 

At the very least, the transliteration box ought support standard scholarly forms of transliteration.
