UKT 120125: I have given a rough guide for Pal-Myan readers, fully realizing that Pali and Sanskrit pronunciations are different.

Watch and listen a video in Bur-Myan with Pal-Myan words: {aún-hkrín:rhic-pa:}
- 120125, 140208

Row-4 consonants: Dentals  
  Tenuis: {ta.} त /t/; Voiceless: {hta.} थ /tʰ/;
  Voiced: {da.} द /d/; Deep-h: {Da.} ध /dʰ/;
  Nasal: {na.} न /n/
Note: IAST transliterations are not given because they do not agree with IPA.

Indic speakers should remember that {hta.} थ is given in IAST as «tha» or «th». In the country of Myanmarpré, the common English transcription <th> stands for IPA /θ/ as in the English word <thin>.

I've finished modifying the names of old grouped entries up to MC-c41-indx.htm :
> p105.htm*, ... , p108.htm, p109.htm, p110.htm - update 2017Aug 
Covered percent, counting from : 109/382 = 28.53 %

> {ta.} त p105.htm* , p106.htm , p107.htm, p108.htm , p109.htm

> {hta.} थ p115-1.htm , {da.} द p115-2.htm , p116.htm , p117.htm , p118.htm , p119.htm

*Page {ta.} त p105.htm is a special case, because Ma Thuzar had done the first half and I had completed the rest. With completion I have moved this to page-by-page group. It is on this indx to have it together with other files still remaining in the old file group.
Scanned page for p123.htm not available

{ta.} त :
modified and moved: p105.htm* - update 2017Aug
  *Re-linked to place the page again with others of the {ta.} त group
modified: ..., p107.htm , p108.htm , p109.htm , p110.htm - update 2017Aug 

English has only two nasals /m/ and /n/ in both onsets and codas of the syllables. The nasals fall in between vowels and plosive-stop consonants in coda position in the pronunciation of the syllables. See Sonority hierarchy on right. /n/ is the first nasal we are coming across, and you should compare /na/ /ni/ /nu/ /nau/ to the vowels /a/ /i/ /u/ /au/. These vowels you would remember are at the corners of the vowel-quadrilateral.

{na.} - 
¤ {ni.} -

p148.htm has been split into p148-1.htm &  p148-2.htm to separate {ta.}- & {pa.}-groups.
The link to p148.htm has been removed, but not the file itself is still in {ta.}-group.
The first file in the {pa.}-group is p148-2.htm : it is in MC-v06 group.
