And if so, would an example of this be in Gayatri mantra, "nah prachodayat" where the visarga in nah would not need to be pronounced fully and it could be said faster / together as in the example given in the video, "kah pibati?"

kishori2017 wrote:If ृ represents the first part of a combination that creates the semi-vowel र, then why would you ever use a half-R (कर्म) instead of ृ? Why would using कृ remove the अ vowel from the “k” sound and replace it with the “R” sound (which leads back to the question of how is this sound a vowel and not a consonant?) Why, for example, would you not use क्री to get to the “kri” sound instead of कृ?
