- though known as "Latin Small Letter Sharp S", because of its shape which looks alike "Cap B", I have tentatively chosen it to represent Mon-Myan {a.} and {}.

Entry {a.}

UKT 140605: There are two aksharas on either side of {a.} in row#7 of the Mon-Myan matrix. Both NMT and Dr.M.TinMon (in {mwun-mrun-ma-sa-p-paung:ku:} "Mon-Myanar Letter Bridge", Yangon, 2006, p042) agree that the consonants of row#7 have the sounds /ba/ and /be/. I also concur with them after listening repeatedly to Mon-Myan speech. In the above links, I have indicated them as {b7a.} and {b7e.}, but in the bookmarks the superscript-7 becomes ordinary-7.

We should compare {b7a.} of Mon-Myan to a corresponding akshara in Skt-Dev.

Skt-Dev:    व va + diagonal  -->  ब ba
Mon-Myan: {wa.} + small circle --> {b7a.} 

Mon-Myan: {b7e.} is the just the counterpart of  {b7a.}

It shows that Myanmar akshara was first used by Pal-Myan which I contend was Magadhi the mother tongue of Gautama Buddha. It further shows that Bur-Myan is not derived from Mon-Myan.
