Similar Letter used in Sanskrit and English
As we have discussed it earlier also, there are certain letters are similar in Sanskrit and English. Okay, we are here again to discuss one very nice concept between Sanskrit and English–similarity between Sanskrit and English. As it has been already mentioned, there’s a lot of research going on to find out some connection between these two languages and we are trying our bit. My only aim is to go deeper and find out what we can contribute to this research.
We are here to discuss one letter structure that is almost similar in both Sanskrit and English and that has the same sound in both the languages. I will provide the image for both these letters of Sanskrit and English. The sound of this letter in Sanskrit is similar to two letters in English.
I will ask you to consider the structure of letter ‘u’ and ‘y’ in English language. Now, its corresponding sound in Sanskrit would be ‘य’. Now, if you consider the structure of form of both these letters, you will notice that ‘य’ has a very close relationship to the structure of the letters of ‘u’ and ‘y’, which have sound of this ‘य’ in Sanskrit. The sound of both these letters is same and so is the structure also.
There are lots of words that are common in Sanskrit and English but not many letters.
