......'bout gradation of vowels (from Sans-krit old-use )

(...) Besides the above ten, there are three more vowels
in Sanskrit whose original pronunciation is lost. They
are now mostly pronounced as combinations of a
consonant and a vowel as follows:
R = r + i, R^ = r + ], = L^ = l + r + i
Note: i) Among these three, only R is frequently used.
An example of this vowel having become a
combination of a consonant and a vowel is found in
the word Sanskrit itself. The sound denoted by ri in
this word must have been a vowel sound which is
now lost to us. In some parts of India this vowel is
pronounced as a combination of r + u. ii) Just as R
has a long counterpart in R^, the vowel L^ = also has a
longer counterpart in theory, but it is not used in
any actual word of Sanskrit. iii) Even though these
sounds are not pronounced like vowels, they have to
be treated as vowels in all grammatical contexts
just
as they were when the Sanskrit grammar was codified
about more than 2500 years ago.
