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

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 2017Nov 
Covered percent, counting from : 110/382 = 28.78 % 
UKT 171027: I've to back tracked to {ta.} त p105.htm & p106.htm to renaming old files without changing the old file numbers.

> {ta.} त p105.htm* - there are no grouped entries in this file: all have been un-grouped and free), 
---------------------------- start naming grc1-b01, etc. from p106.htm 
   p106.htm , p107.htm, p108.htm , p109.htm
> p110.htm, p111.htm, p112.htm , p113.htm , p114.htm
> {hta.} थ p115-1.htm , {da.} द p115-2.htm , p116.htm , p117.htm , p118.htm , p119.htm

> p145.htm , p146.htm , p147.htm , p148-1.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
Whole p148.htm of the ink-on-paper 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.

{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 Scale 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.
