In the Sanskrit alphabet there are five letters called “hissing”.
The first is pronounced palatally and is the “s” written with a tilde above, that is ś. The sound of the S resembles that of the S cerebral but is more sibilant.
Then we have a cerebral S, which is equivalent to our sh, that is ṣ.
And finally there is a dental one that corresponds to our s, that is स.
- Manonatha Dasa
