In my book it says that the Pali l is pronounced like the l in sell while the Pali ḷ (l with a dot under it) is pronounced like the l in felt; however I don't see a difference between the ls in sell and felt. If there were a difference it would be between e.g. "sell" and "lot". So what's the difference between l and ḷ?
I am on the path, however not yet advanced. Any opinions or insights I share are meant entirely for discussion purposes and in cases where people might find them beneficial in whatever way. Since I am not advanced on the Path, I cannot guarantee that what I say will always necessarily be 100% true or in line with the Dhamma. However, having had an extremely interesting life with a wide variety of different (many of them deep) experiences, I hope that anything I share will be of use, provide food for thought, and inspire interesting and beneficial discussions.
Mettā to all!
