ड़ (and ढ़) vs. [edit]

ड़ and are both represented by ṛ in w:Devanagari, but in order to disambiguate them, I'd like to use ŕ for one of them. Currently, I have ŕ listed as describing ड़, but as this is a retroflex sound, and the modern appears to be pronounced [r] in Hindi, I'd like to switch this so that the retroflex consonants can all be represented by dot-below characters. If no one objects, I'll implement this soon. — [ R·I·C ] opiaterein — 03:39, 1 May 2009 (UTC)

visarga[edit]

I couldn't find anything mentioning visarga, the symbol (ḥ) as in दूःख. --Anatoli 12:49, 19 January 2011 (UTC)

That's the only place I've ever seen visarga in Hindi, though I guess it could be an uncommon or high-register word... Anyway I see no problem using ḥ. — [ R·I·C ] opiaterein — 01:01, 25 January 2011 (UTC)
Yeah, it must uncommon, another one I know is a variant spelling of six in Hindi. I will add the symbol and transliteration for consistency. --Anatoli 02:35, 25 January 2011 (UTC)

double tilde[edit]

I forgot, did we ever come to a conclusion on how to deal with nasalized diphthongs, since the Unicode double tilde is so buggy? It's a pretty bad issue for words like मैं (maĩ). -- Liliana 05:24, 15 February 2012 (UTC)

Transliteration module[edit]

This module Module:hi-translit may need some tweaking but it's already quite useful. E.g. to transliterate हिन्दी, use {{#invoke:hi-translit|tr|हिन्दी}} and receive" "hindī" (today's result is "hindī"). --Anatoli (обсудить/вклад) 08:07, 27 April 2013 (UTC)
