Datura alba  aka {pa.deing:hpru}

Contents of this page


UKT: The 4 phonemes of row #4 of the akshara-matrix
   {ta.} (tenuis), {hta.} (voiceless), {da.} (voiced), {Da.} (deep-h)
are articulated with the tongue tip almost touching the roof of the mouth moving from the dental through alveolar to the retroflex positions.
   Westerners could not differentiate between {ta.} & {hta.} - they think they are the voiceless allophones of /t/ and dubbed the {hta.} as aspirate.
   {da.} & {Da.} are both voiced and are the allophones of /d/. The Western phoneticians dubbed {Da.} as "aspirate" with which I cannot agree. {Da.} has a deep-h element to it. In ordinary Bur-Myan speech {da.} & {Da.} are pronounced the same, but in Pal-Myan they are differentiated. This is my personal opinion with which other Bur-Myan phonetician may not agree. I wait for input from my peers. -- UKT120422
