The writing on this picture looks like "sakhrata shabdakiisha", right?
(the english text there is wrong, I believe)
Shouldn't that be moved the Language-related humour forum? =)Delodephius wrote:It says saṃskṛta śabdakoṣa which means Sanskrit Dictionary, although I think 'dictionary' is śabdakośa. The inscription might be in Hindi, I don't know.
Delodephius wrote:The /ṛ/ in /skṛ/ is a vocalic /r/ ऋ. It is the syllable carrier. Let me me cut the word into syllables:
saṃskṛta > saṃ.skṛ.ta सं-स्कृ-त
In Slovak also /l/, like in jablko (apple) or even a long /l/ as in jabĺčko (small apple). This is also present in Sanskrit and written as /ḷ/ ऌ for example in /kḷ/ कॢ .
The word vŕba sounds "верба" in Russian, how do you spell it?
The jabĺčko is "яблочко".
RE: saṃskṛta - it actually should be spelled like "Samskrita", am I right now?
