Devanāgarī Study Cards

The study deck includes the following:
  • an overview card (color-coded)
  • cards for all independent devanāgarī characters (color-coded)
  • cards for two special characters (kṣa and jña) and for each vowel as it appears after a consonant (these characters are all in black, and on a pale blue background)
  • a brief leaflet that suggests strategies for learning devanāgarī

    The front of each card contains just the Sanskrit character in devanāgarī script. The back features the standard transliteration of the character, a pronunciation aid in the form of an English word containing the relevant sound (underlined); a systematic description of what each sound is, such as ‘unaspirated unvoiced labial stop’. (This may be helpful for the linguists among you; if you don’t find it useful, simply ignore it.)
