122. {rhauk}
Citrus medica Linn. var. limonum

UKT: How to spell the name of this plant in Romabama had troubled me for a long time. Because, speaking from the point of view of English pronunciation, all, including myself, would have spelled it as {shauk}. However, that would be amounting to writing {sa.loan: ha.hto:} which is not permitted in Burmese-Myanmar. In the end, I had to force myself to accept that since the akshara involved is r6c2 {ra.}, the Romabama spelling could only be {rhauk} which should be read with a /ʃ/ sound as in <shout> /ʃaʊt/ (pronunciation of <shout> from DJPD16 487). The transcription given in MEDict 418 is /|shau'|/ .
