{sait} Bur-Myan

- UKT 140531

The two words {sait} in Bur-Myan and {sait~ta.} in Pal-Myan are the same. The only difference is the presence of {a-þût} in Bur and the conjunct {paaHT-hsing.}-form in Pal. They mean the same, but differ in usage.

{sait} - n. ¹. mind, thought, consciousness, heart (as in "having a good hear"). ². desire, will, interest (as in "having interest in doing something"). ³. preoccupation (as in "preoccupied with thought of spouse or family") -- MLC PED2006-122.

MLC gives derivatives from p122-124.

In Pal-Lat it is «citta» which on rendering into Pal-Dev becomes चित्त . In Bur-Myan and Pal-Myan, the akshara-matrix has only the palatal plosive-stop, {sa.} च «ca» is the palatal. Its pronunciation is not only voiceless but tenuis as well. Its killed form is {c} च् «c». There is a similar sounding phoneme in Skt-Dev which is dental hissing fricative, {Sa.} ष «ṣa» with its killed form {S} ष् «ṣ».

Remember:
Burmese (palatal):                {sa.} «ca» &  {c} च् «c» //                no dental
Sanskrit (palatal & dental): {sa.} «ca» &  {c} च् «c» //  {Sa.} «ṣa» {Sa.} ष् «ṣ» 
Note: where there is no possible mix up,
both «ca» and «ṣa» will be represented by {ca.}/{sa.}

The palatal plosive-stop tenuis, {sa.} «ca» sound is not present in Eng-Lat and other European languages. They have to use the next grapheme {hsa.} «cha». The Western IE (Indo-European) speakers cannot differentiate {sa.} «ca» and {hsa.} «cha». They hear them as the same sound and call such sounds as allophones. To us, the Tib-Bur and Eastern IE speakers, they are very different. IPA transcriptions are very misleading in the case of allophones.

Don't be fooled by the IAST «ca» for {sa.}. Sanskritists pronounce it as / {kya.}/ and its neighbour «cha» as / {hkya.}/. Since the Eng-Lat speakers cannot differentiate {sa.} «ca» and {hsa.} «cha», they pronounce both as <ch> as in the English word <church>, and IPA gives <church> as  /ʧɜːʧ/ (DJPD16-097). And they classed /ʧ/ as affricate - which Bur-Myan and Pal-Myan do not have.
