Let us look at some vinyls for this consonant group...

First for 'pa' - there is this ടക്കുതിര / patakkuthira / படக்குதிர / पटककुतिर.

This vinyl is quite interesting - it has Kannur Rajan as MD and MSV & Kamal have sung in the album Surprised:o:o

Lesson 11 Last set of consonants (Misc / Residual / non-series kind)

We'll cover all the remaining consonants in this group. First of all, let us look at the characters (all added with അ for ease of reading):

- ya / ய / य

- ra / ர / र

- la / ல / ल

- va / வ / व (same as Thamizh but without the bubble)

- sha / no Thamizh equivalent, except one use as a combo "shri" - ஸ்ரீ / श

- shha / ஷ / ष

- sa / ஸ / स

- ha / ஹ / ह

- La / ள / no Hindi equivalent

- zha (one normally used, but not correct, tongue-twisted way of telling "ra" seems better) / ழ / No Hindi equivalent

- Ra / ற / No Hindi equivalent

Let us look at "doubling" of some of the above in the next post Smile

Re: Learn to READ Malayalam - using vinyl ("LP" record) covers and such movie-based resources

Post  app_engine on Fri May 10, 2013 7:20 pm

Only five of the above have "COMBO" letter style for doubling...For others, it's simply twice business.

യ്യ - yya

ല്ല - lla (Funny to see how a Thamizh character gets introduced out of nowhere Laughing)

വ്വ - vva

ശ്ശ - shsha

റ്റ - RRa

I wish to also introduce another VERY IMPORTANT COMBO style in this post, of adding ya (യ) , va (വ) & ra-Ra (ര / റ) to consonants.

Let me illustrate it with the first consonant, ക്.

Somebody thought it will be easy to introduce a couple more hooks around consonants (in addition to all those thuNaikkAl, superscript style hook on right top, various walking-stick like additions on the RHS etc) and they picked this ya, va & ra sounds for that.

That way, instead of having

ക് + യ = ക് യ, they made it ക്യ. Something very similar to "kru" കൃ but without closing the hook on the bottom. So, please don't confuse between these two!

Some more samples : മ്യ (mya) പ്യ (pya) ഷ്യ (shya)

Likewise, instead of having

ക് + വ = ക് വ, they made it ക്വ ! Yes, a "reverse-L" on RHS, to add the "va" sound to any consonant.

Some more samples : ച്വ (chva) ധ്വ (dhva) ത്വ (thva)

And finally, for addition of "ra/Ra" sound, they introduced the hook on LHS! Much like "oththa suzhi" & "retta shuzhi" komboos!

That way, for ക് + ര = ക് ര, they made it ക്ര Smile

Some more samples :

ശ്ര (shra) / ഗ്ര (gra/ ട്ര (tra)

Interestingly, you can add vowels to these combos and "double" the symbols around.

For example, say you already have "shr" as ശ്ര്

Now, you can add ee (ഈ) to that combo, and make it shree!

That will look like : ശ്രീ (This the exact equivalent of the Thamizh ஸ்ரீ, even looks alike!)

Some similar combinations, to illustrate :

പ്രേ - p + r + yE : prE

ക്വീ = k + v + ee : kvee

ബ്യൂ = b + y + oo = byoo

ട്യൂ = t + y +oo = tyoo

സ്വീ = b + v + ee = bvee

ബ്രാ = b + r + A = brA

Let me give some word examples in the next post!

Post  app_engine on Fri May 10, 2013 9:23 pm

I take the liberty to infuse all the "combo" concepts discussed thus for in the sample words to this relatively large group (i.e. addition of vowels, doubling of consonants, addition of these three consonants y, r, v to other consonants and adding vowels to such doubling or otherwise addition of consonants etc).

So, this may be a difficult exercise!

However, considering that we've had a few weeks of familiarity to the script otherwise, this may be tolerable IMHO!

After this, we'll only have other "hetero-combo-of-consonants" left to learn and with that, voila, we'll be done with these alphabet lessons!

യ്യപ്പൻ - ayyappan - அய்யப்பன் -अय्यप्पन

രാണൻ - rAvaNan - ராவணன் - रावणन

ലാണ്യ - lAvaNya - லாவண்ய - लावण्य

ട്ടാണോ - vattANo - வட்டாணோ -वटटाणो (are you mad?)

ശ്രീവിദ്യ - shrividya - ஸ்ரீவித்ய - श्रीविद्य

തുഷാരം - thushhAram - துஷாரம் - तुषारम

സാഗരം - sAgaram - ஸாகரம் - सागरम

രിൻ - hariharan - ஹரிஹரன் - हरिहरन

ള്ളി - paLLi - பள்ளி - पल्ली (mosque / church)

തമിഴ് - thamizh - தமிழ் - तमिल

പാ - pARa - பாற - पार

Time for some vinyls Smile

We have 11 consonants in the last group, opportunity to post 11 vinyl pics Smile

The first one, for "ya" / യ...let us pick the BM / IR / Mammootty movie Smile

യാത്ര / yAthra / யாத்ர / यात्र (look at the "OLD" way the "thra" character is featured on the vinyl cover...Malayalam was written like that even in 1985 / 86 when I entered Palakkad Smile )

First, let's take "La / ള" which looks like Malayalam u/ഉ, so watch out Wink
