Romabama has to accept the fact that in Sanskrit
  s-conjuncts: though spelled with a thibilant {a.} /θ/, the pronunciation
     is sibilant {sa.} /s/. Syllables with /sk/ /st/ and /sp/ are quite distinct
     in Sanskrit-Devanagari (an IE language), even though they are absent
     in Burmese-Myanmar (a Tib-Myan language).
  s-medials: these are also spelled with a thibilant {a.} /θ/.
However, the jury is still out considering whether the pronunciation
in Pali-Myanmar is thibilant or sibilant. -- UKT 110920

s-conjuncts 
    - very difficult pronunciation for those Bur-Myan who have not been exposed to English.
{~ka.}-conjuncts pronounced as /ska/  as in English <skin>
   - th-sk-conj-211top-4.htm
{~ta.}-conjuncts pronounced as /sta/ as in English <sting>
   - th-st-conj-211top-8.htm 
{~pa.}-conjunct स्प pronounced as /spa/ as in English <spin>
   - th-sp-conj-213b1-2.htm 

s-medials
    - easily pronounced by most Bur-Myan
{~ya.}-medial स्य pronounced as either /θja/ or /sja/
   - th-sy-med-213b4-2.htm
   - the IPA /j/ stands for Bur-Myan {ya.} - the {ya.ping.}-former, sign
{~wa.}-medial pronounced as /swa/ in Skt-Dev and as /θwa/ in Bur-Myan
   - the sound /θwa/ is generated by {wa.} - the {wa.hsw:}-former, sign
   - th-sw1-med-214top-5.htm 
{~wa}-medial pronounced as /swaː/ in Skt-Dev and as /θwaː/ in Bur-Myan
   - th-sw2-med-215b2-6 : the IPA triangular colon /ː/ stands for a long vowel
