Every Little Helps

Well, why not?

As instructed,
1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open the book to page 23.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the sentence in your journal along with these instructions.

"It is, then, made with the flat of the tongue against the forward part of the palatal arch -- that is to say, it is the usual and normal sh-sound."
(Whitney's Sanskrit Grammar -- I had a hard time finding page 23, as he's numbered by bullet-point correlated with the dictionary and Lanman's Sanskrit Reader rather than page. What does that say about me? I have several hundred books here, on all subjects, and just bought a new P. J. O'Rourke, but the first to hand is a Sanskrit grammar.)
