Sanskrit Pronunciation Guide
The following table deals with some of the letters of the Sanskrit alphabet that may need extra attention especially for Westerners.
|ū||pool||ṁ||dim (actually more complicated than this but it will do for now)|
* These sounds are all produced with the tongue at the roof of the mouth
Consonants followed by an “h” such as “gh” or “bh” are pronounced with more “air”.
