I recommend you get a real name and do not post using the troll and spam-
infested Google Groups, but a newsreader instead.

I do not think you need regular expressions for that: you can use Unicode

BTDT.  For a translator application, I used Python to sort a dictionary of 
the Latin phonetic transcription of Golic Vulcan whose alphabet is “S T P K 
R L A Sh O U D V Kh E H G Ch I N Zh M Y F Z Th W B” [1].  re helped a lot 
with that because inversely sorting the list by character length and turning 
it into an alternation allowed me to easily find the characters in words, 
and assign numbers to the letters so that I could sort the words according 
to this alphabet.  If anyone is interested, I can post the relevant code.
