शब्दः[edit]

Perhaps in Sanskrit it has visarga, शब्दः? Ref. sa:w:शब्दः (noise). -Aleator (talk) 19:54, 22 June 2012 (UTC)

Yes, but the ending varies according to sandhi, so the normal practice is to use the root form found in most paper dictionaries. Also, the other side of the coin is that Sanskrit is the only language that has the visarga, so it's incorrect to move all of the other entries to the visarga form along with it. There's nothing wrong with creating a separate entry spelled with the visarga, but I would only use it for a "sandhi form of" entry. Chuck Entz (talk) 20:52, 22 June 2012 (UTC)
