Pronunciation of अं is wrong[edit]

Why is the translingual pronunciation अं /əŋ/? I learnt it as /əm/ and everyone I know pronounce it as /əm/ or rarely /ə̃/. The sound anyway originated as an allophone of /m/ in certain positions in Sanskrit and is thus Romanised as aṃ/aṁ. The /əŋ/ pronunciation is simply a mistake and makes no sense in any way. प्रणव (talk) 20:26, 9 August 2018 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Removed. That pronunciation was originally added for a Hindi entry, and then the entry was transformed into a Translingual one by an editor who didn't know any better. There should not be a pronunciation section in the Translingual entry at all. —Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 20:31, 9 August 2018 (UTC)
