To whom it may concern,
I writing because I would to know if someone can help with certain
Sanskrit/Pali characters in roman scripts. This to clarify how to be proceed in
setting up a Sanskrit/Pali -- English dictionary.
Most characters are simple, like vowels with macrons, or some letters that have
either a dot below or above. The characters that are confusing are the ones
with aspirated stops, namely the following: kh, gh, ch, th, th with dot below,
dh, dh with dot below, ph and bh. For example, if I understand correctly, in
the word dharma, the letters "dha" actually represent one character. Is their a
unicode equivalent to "dha"?
The reason I ask is that this would dramatically simplify the sorting of words
in the Pali/Sanskrit alphabetical order if each "letter" in Pali/Sanskrit was
represented by one unicode character.
I hope this makes sense, as I am new to unicode and linguistics.
