{k~ta.} : hanging consonant

UKT 171122: The following are comparable to Bur-Myan medials, but pronounced as disyllable
See my note on Slightly/Highly rhotic syllables

{kya.} - non-rhotic disyllabic: Ya'pin {ya.pn.} 'lifted by {ya.}'

{kra.} - rhotic disyllable: Ra'ric {ra.ric} 'rounded by {ra.}'

{kri.} क्रि : don't get mixed up with {kRi.} कृ : rely on the length of the hood
{kri} क्री : don't get mixed up with {kRi} कॄ : rely on the length of the hood

Look for La'hsw {la.hsw:} 'hanging {la.}',
Wa'hsw {wa.hsw:} 'hanging {wa.}',
and Hisser-sa'hsw {Sa.hsw:} 'hanging hisser {Sa.}' - on  p077.htm
Note: Palatal {sa.}/ {c} and Dental {Sa.}/ {S} are clearly differentiated in Romabama.

{k~ta.} : hanging-consonant

UKT 140411, 170623, 171121: Formerly I had thought Skt-Dev, just like Bur-Myan & Pal-Myan, would have monosyllabic medials. I am now finding that it has only disyllabic conjuncts, and so what I had thought to be {kya.} must be written as {k~ya.} with {ya.} hanging below. No wonder my Indian friends in Canada could not properly pronounce my Burmese name KYAW.

These disyllabic conjuncts are also found in Mon-Myan as Hanging consonants {hsw:by:}. See Hanging consonants in Basic Mon-Myanmar Language by Naing Maung Toe, Rangoon, 2007, p047. See downloaded pages in TIL HD-PDF and SD-PDF libraries -
- NaiMgToe-MonMyan<> / Bkp<> (link chk 170623)
In Mon-Myan, there are 11 hanging consonants : hanging r1c5 , hanging r2c5 , ...

क्त [ k-ta ] = क ् त  --> {k~ta.} pronounced as disyllable

{k~na.} / Mon-Myan representation:

UKT 140412: There are many English words with <kn> such as <knee> /niː/ & <know> /nəʊ/ (US) /noʊ/. And, you know what the modern English speakers had done.

They "cheated" and simply dubbed <k> to be silent. And because of their cheating, the poor Celtic Gnome who is rich in gold has become a "Nome". I was really surprised to find many silent letters in English, which we will not allow in Bur-Myan. When the western phoneticians insisted that we must not pronounce as it is spelled, it only shows their ignorance of the Akshara languages which are based on sound phonemic principles.

क्नथ [ knath-a ]
- the root knath (gr.).
11) क्नथ (p. 58) knath-a

/ {k~ya.} - the disyllabic, not monosyllabic

CAUTION: Bur-Myan and its counter-part Skt-Dev consonantal pairs have looks-alike: 
{hta.}   (U0925)  &  {ya.}    (U092F).

UKT 120127, 140412, 170410: Over two years my position has changed, and please note that as my understanding of BEPS languages increased, my opinions will change further. For the present, I hold that monosyllabic medials such as {kya.} & {kra.} are not present in Sanskrit. They are present only in Bur-Myan among the BEPS languages. I am still not sure of Pali, however I expect Pal-Myan will be similar to Bur-Myan in most cases. After listening repeatedly the Mon-Myan sounds, I feel that it is similar to Sanskrit, {kya.} & {kra.} are disyllabic. Moreover, of the old Mon dialects, the only dialect remaining is the Mataban dialect of present day Mon-state. However, even this dialect sounds different as one goes from west to east into Thailand and Cambodia. The dialect of Pegu-Mons - that of my great-grandmother Daw MMa - which had been adulterated by Telugu, has completely disappeared.

Bur-Myan (Irrawaddy valley dialect of Mandalay and Rangoon)
  - non-rhotic monosyllabic medials: {kya.}, {kra.}
Bur-Myan (Rakhine dialect, and dialects of outlying areas), & Pal-Myan
  - non-rhotic monosyllabic medial: {kya.}
  - slightly rhotic monosyllabic medial: {kra.}
Skt-Myan (not well known) mostly disyllabic conjunct
 - {k~ya.}, repha  {k~ra.}, highly rhotic {kRi.}
Note: {k~ra.} will no longer represent , and {kRa.} is not known in Skt-Dev.

Formation of medials in Bur-Myan are from approximants {ya.}, {ra.}, {la.} (in Daw dialect), {wa.} and {ha.}. The processes of formation are known as {ya.pn.}, {ra.ric}, {la.hsw:}, {wa.hsw:}, and {ha.hto:}. {la.hsw:}, {wa.hsw:} are "hanging-consonants" and shapes of the hanging-on consonant {la.} and {wa.} remain unchanged: whereas there is change in shape in {ya.pn.}, {ra.ric} and {ha.hto:}. 


क्नूय्् [ KNY ]
- only cs. knopaya, P. drench. abhi, wet, moisten.
10) क्नूय्् (p. 58) KNY knopaya,

UKT 151201, 170623, 171121: Skt-Dev and Eng-Lat do not have the Bur-Myan medials which are monosyllabic. They could pronounce our Bur-Myan medials, {kya.} & {kra.}, only as disyllabic vertical conjuncts such as {k~ya.} & {k~ra.}. The rhoticity of {kra.} is so slight that Bur-Myan of Irrawaddy basin - most of the population of Myanmarpr - pronounce {kya.} & {kra.} the same. They are pronounced differently in the Bur-Myan dialect of Arakan and Pal-Myan. This presents a unique situation in BEPS transcription.

The high rhoticity is found in Skt-Dev close vowel {iRi.} ऋ. When {ka.} क, is modified by this vowel we get {kRi.} कृ . Compared to {kRi.}, {kri.} is almost non-rhotic, and Bur-Myan of Irrawaddy basin pronounce it as {kyi.}. BEPS differentiates lightly or non-rhotic {kri.} and highly rhotic {kRi.} by the length of the hood.

Bur-Myan has a set of syllables very close in pronunciation to {kyi.} (1 blnk) & {kri.} (1 blnk). It is spelled with Nya'gyi {a.}/ {}, and is perfectly non-rhotic. 

{k.} (1 blnk), {k} (2 blnk), {k:} (2 blnk + emphasis)

In Pali-Myan, Nya'gyi cannot be placed under virama {a.t}: it breaks up into two Nya'l: {~a.}

{k~ra.}/ : rhotic disyllable

UKT 151201: The conjunct क्र = क ् र cannot be written as {k~ra.} with a hanging {ra.}, because it would be confusing in Mon-Myan. It is written as {kra.}. It is an important prefix which can be followed by other consonants,  {kra.ka.}/ .

UKT notes

Approximants as Medial formers 

- UKT 170409

In modern Bur-Myan language there are 4 medial formers: {ya.}, {ra.}, {wa.}, and {ha.}. They are approximants, and all give monosyllabic medials, e.g. with {ka.} giving {kya.}, {kra.} (non-rhotic pronounced similar to {kya.}, but slightly rhotic in Rakhine dialect), and {kwa.}.

{ha.} will not modify {ka.}, but will form medials with nasals, e.g. with {na.} giving {nha.}.

Based on {a.} being under a virama, similar to {ya.}, I have included it as a approximants. We find {a.} as a hanger-on in Mon-Myan.

However, these medial-formers in Skt-Dev, give rise to disyllabic conjuncts.

In Mon-Myan we find a similarity to Sanskrit however I may have to change my position as my progress in Mon language increases.

Inset def: Grammatical notes and Vocabulary of the Peguan Language by J.M. Haswell, Rangoon, American Mission Press, 1874, p031.
- MV1874-indx > con-ka1.htm (link chk 170409)

Because of the formation of disyllables, I will have to call {ya.}, {ra.}, {wa.}, as hangers-on, a term from Mon-Myan.

According to Nai Mg Toe, {sa.}/ {c}) च ca [NOT the hisser ष ṣa] will allow only the following as "hangers-on": {a.}, {na.}, {ma.}, {ya.}, {ra.}, {la.}, {wa.}. This indicates that Mon-Myan hanging-consonants are not lisping-consonants.

Slightly rhotic and Highly rhotic syllables :
e.g. {k~ra.}// क्रि  & {kRi.} कृ

There is no possibility of mixed up between {k~ra.}/ (pronounced in Bur-Myan as {kya.}) with rhotic vowel {iRi.}, if we remember that Loan'gyi'tin is the only special case. Moreover, in Mon-Myan means Nga'hsw {nga.hsw:} 'hanging {nga.}-Mon.
