LESSON ONE HUNDRED

Consonants and Vowel Derivatives -   

This lesson is a compilation of all the letters from the preceding ninty-nine lessons. This final lesson serves as an index and illustrates the formation of the comprehensive symbol set of the Classical Sinhalese Symbols with the addition of my new symbol, for the representation of "Z".

All these symbols are arrainged by the letter classes, and are binary weighted as applied in my improved proposed UNICODE standard[2016].

Theoretically, an extensive symbol set beyond those shown below can be made, but the symbols shown here are the only valid ones ever used in pre-nineteenth century publications. e.g. Rev. Carter's Sinhala English Dictionary.

Please note that some symbols are used exclusively to write Pali with the Sinhala script, therefore you would not encounter these in newspapers, school books and common writings.

The underlined consonants are the Pali ligature forms. When such a symbol is used, the following letter gets automatically attached to the right without a visible separation between adjecent letters, therby forming a Pali ligature.

To identify the entire symbol, place your browser cursor on a letter and move it to the left or right, the entire symbol will get highlighted.

The Seven Consonant Classes are:

  Ka Class Consonants   _      

NOTE 1. These vowel signs corresponding to the above independent vowels are positioned to the right, left, above, below or both sides of a valid Consonant letter.

NOTE: 2. The above illustrated Vowel Diacritic Symbols can ONLY occupy a position on a consonant and three vowels, namely , , and . This is another grammar rule to remember.

Learn how to write and pronounce all the Sinhalese Vowel Signs [Diacritic Vowel Marks "" "Pili"{plural}; "Pilla"{singular}] represented in each of the lessons as listed below.

So far you have learned about the Independent Sinhalese vowel signs in this illustration.
This is a good time to recapture what was in the previous lessons.

The Independent 

Vowels



The vowel signs are sub-divided to sets indicating the Short and Long vowel sounds.

1. The Short sound Vowels are:



 

2. The Long sound Vowels are:



Sinhalese Vowel Consonants [4] as: , , , 

Iru Ilue



These are two other letters placed in this group. They are considered as Vowel Consonants, namely "Ri"  and "Ilu" . The former is used today, but the latter has been phased out since the 1900s. For thoroughness of learning we should continue to learn of their presence as one may run into this letter in the future while studying Sinhalese books prior to 1900s. The symbols "" and "" are the representations of the lengthened sounds, "IRue" and "Ilue".

Vowel Signs of  [Ayanna] Suppression "   " "Alkireema" 

LESSON EIGHTY TWO

 [Ayanna] Representation by Alkireema 

 Ayanna is the first independent Sinhalese vowel.

This Sinhalese vowel "" has the short sound of English "A" better represented as in "undo", "under".



The Sinhalese vowel "" is considered the inherent sound of the basic consonant symbols. Therefore there is no symbolic modification to the native shape of a consonant.

For the purpose of suppression of this inherent "a" sound, and thereby producing an abrupt short sound of any consonant, these symbols, Alkireem [Alkireema is singular] are used:

(1)  (e.g. , , , , ) [used with horizontal, descender or letter with sloping upper segments ONLY] and (e.g. , , , , , )

(2)  (, , ) [used with upright letters ONLY]

(3)  (, ) [used exclusively with  and ]

(4) In addition they also lengthen the sound of certain symbols: , , , , , , , , , etc.

IMPORTANT INGUISTIC FEATURES (GRAMMAR RULE):

1. There is no modification to the shape of the native consonant symbol, but the diacritic glyph is simply attached.

2. Vowel Diacritic Symbols can ONLY occupy a position on a consonant and three vowels, namely , , and .

LESSON EIGHTY THREE

 [Aayanna] Representation by AelaPili  

 Aayanna is the second independent Sinhalese vowel.

To add the  sound to a Sinhalese Consonant Letter and thus modifying it, a Vowel Sign representation of  is needed. Two similar symbols, differing only by their size and vertical positioning are used to accomplish this. The symbol names are "AlaPilla", for singular and "AlaPili" for plural.

The commoner, larger symbol is "" and applies to all the valid consonant letters excepting these four letters "", "", "", and "" which use the smaller one " " which I have named as "Dha AelaPilla". This symbol, positioned below the baseline is essential for traditional writing.

Some examples of consonants using the common symbol "" are "", "", "", "", "", and "" etc.

These Sinhalese Vowel Signs "" and " " are surrogates for "" and thus have the long sound of English "A" as in "Art", "Arc", "Farm".

 Aeyanna is the third independent Sinhalese vowel.

To add the  sound to a Sinhalese Consonant Letter and thus modifying it, a Vowel Sign representation of  is needed. Three similar symbols, differing only by their size and vertical positioning are used to accomplish this.

The common symbol is "" and applies to all the valid consonant letters excepting these four letters "", "", "", and "" which use the smaller one " " and another, "" which uses the tall "Rayanna Keti Aedapilla" " ". The symbol names of others are "Keti Aedapilla", for singular and "Keti Aedapilli" for plural. I have named the smaller one " " as "Dha Keti AedaPilla". This symbol, positioned below the baseline is essential for traditional writing.

Some examples of consonants using the commoner symbol "" are "", "", "", "", "", and "" etc.

These Sinhalese Vowel Signs "" and " " are surrogates for "" and thus have the short sound of English "A" as in "At", "Adverb", "Act".

 Uyanna is the seventh independent Sinhalese vowel.

 

To add the "" sound to a Sinhalese Consonant Letter and thus modifying it, a Vowel Sign representation of "" is needed. Five symbols, differing by their shape, size and vertical positioning are used to accomplish this. The symbol name is "Keti Paapilla", for singular and "Keti Paapilli" for plural. The word "PaaPilla" means "Footer Diacritic Mark".

The first symbol "" that I named as "Waka Keti Paapilla"[means "Curved-Footer Diacritic Mark"] applies to some valid consonant letters, most of which are elongated horizontally such as these: "".

The fourth symbol "" which is the "Keti Aedapilla" also serves as "Rayanna Keti PaaPilla" to modify "" to"".

The fifth symbol is "", which replaces "" when the latter is modified with a Keti PaaPilla.
