Malay has an interesting feature in the prefix me [m@.(C)means the consonant
me-nganga /ng/ = [N]
me-nyanyi /ny/ = [n^]
I wonder why the voiceless plosives disappear rather than the voiced? And
maybe the [s] of simpar is etymologically a palatal voiceless plosive [c]?
Also, I'll post some Sanskrit sandhi rules that might be useful. But I've
had to retype this Malay message once already.
