UKT 200507: Note the presence of look-alike's which are clearly differentiated in BEPS:
  r2c1 Palatal-stop {sa.}/ {c}, and Dental-fricative hisser {Sa.}/ {S}.
Note also that {Ska.} as in English "skin" is different from {kSa.} - the Pseudo-Kha. In both cases : S is commonly de-capitalized as {ska.} and {ksa.}


Mac p061c1 contd Contents of this page

{ka.kSa.} कक्ष :
  a special case of {kak} resulting from break up of Pseudo-Kha.
{ka.gna.} कङ
{kn~ka.} कङ् - :  Kin'si is found only in Bur-Myan & Pali-Myan
{ka.sa.} कच : Palatal stop {sa.}/ {c}
{ka.za.} कज
{ka.a.} कञ  : Nya-minor 
{ki~a} : written as in Pal . 
  Note how I've use the colour-scheme to show that Nya-major aka Nyagyi is a conjunct. In Bur-Myan the word is {ka.a}.

{ki~a} कञ्ञा

Note how I've used the colour-scheme to show that Nya-major is a conjunct in Pal-Myan. In Bur-Myan, Nya-major is a basic akshara resulting in {ka.a}. In Pal-Myan {k~a}, the Nya-major is a conjunct made up of two Nya-minors. The two words have differing pronunciations. See my note on the long-lost Bur-Myan Nya'major  {a}/ {}, which is stable under Virama {a.t}.
