Remember {a.žūt} is not allowed in Pal-Myan.
We find only conjuncts in which the upper member is equivalent to the vowel in association
with {ka.} being checked by the IPA plosive-stops /k/ /t/ /p/ & nasals /n/ /m/

{koak} : vowel checked by {k} or IPA /k/
  {king} : vowel checked by {ng} or IPA /ŋ/


The Problem of Compound words and White-spaces

UKT 140421:

Many Pali compound-words in this file can easily be broken up into individual words without any change in meaning. It is imperative in BEPS. There is no reason why these are written continuously. An example is {kļn~hka wi.ta.ra.Na. wi.žoad~Di.}. It is written continuously in International Pali (Pal-Latin) as «kaṅkhāvitaraṅavisuddhi». It could easily be broken up into individual words. At present, my problem is only with Pal-Myan and not with International Pali. I suggest it should be broken up as I have done.

At once, the attendant problem of white-spaces in computer-fonts come in. I am trying to find a solution to this problem by counting individual pixels on Paint. I am finding that there should be 2 kinds of white-spaces: one between syllables, and the second between words. Clearly, the second should be longer - but by how much?
