When discussing the varga combinations in Pali it is widespread practice to
refer to combinations such as DD.DDH as 'geminates' - possibly because
combinations such as DDH.DDH are not permitted in Pali. It's also possible
that the term is a mistranslation of yamaka. I put the term in quotes
because they are indeed not true geminates - adjacent aspirated consonants
were written in Classical Greek and occur in Armenian.
