"Hello, thank you"
There is the halant ("a diacritic used in most writing systems of the Indian subcontinent to signify the lack of an inherent vowel") that looks like this: ्. It can be used to combine letters. E.g., ध न ् य व ा द combines to: धन्यवाद.
On my keyboard Devanagari QWERTY the halant is bound to f, but this can differ.
"Namaste dhan'yavāda" is what I find online. Does anyone know what the apostrophe after "n" means? I guess it might me that the stress falls on the subsequent vowel; however, I had believed that stress always falls on long vowels in Sanskrit (and the subsequent vowel isn't the long vowel here)?
