    Dear Richard,

    I would like to point out some wrong expressiong in geminate ddha section,
    It's totally wrong for that expression. It would not be form as geminate

    It's possible to form as DDA + VIRAMA + DDHA sequence expression.

    please see in my attachment.
    It's a little difficult to remember.
