Oh, I was guessing perhaps it was a "joining with sound" practice.
It is a more general term than the name of ChNN's transcription system. It really just refers to phonetics in general. There are several different sgra sbyor texts up on TBRC and there are others not yet up that cover regional phonetics.
What treehuggingoctopus is referring to specifically is one of Rinpoche's texts explaining, as Malcolm mentioned, Rinpoche's phonetic, pinyin-based, transcription system.
Thank you for explaining this, I am not familiar with this genre. The only text I have been exposed to in Tibetan like this this is HH Dudjom Rinpoche's text (in his sung bum) about how to pronounce Sanskrit.
