Likewise in India the first edition, which was printed twice, has been sold out, so I am now looking for a new publisher for an Indian publication of the second edition. Tamil and Sanskrit words in it, using diacritics to make it more precise, and added an explanation of my transliteration scheme and a detailed glossary. India I will provide information about it here. In this Kindle edition the transliteration table and the special Unicode characters used for Latin diacritics, Tamil and Devanagari characters will all display correctly in some Kindle readers but not others.
