One: Scansion and Related Matters

 

1.4 Exceptions

Occasionally we come across exceptions to the normal rules of scansion:

1) Some conjuncts do not make position (i.e. they fail to make the preceding syllable heavy as expected).

2) Occasionally partial vowels (sarabhatti) are written, but have to be ignored when scanning a verse.
