Correction: I meant ‘at the end of one line’.

> I’ve just had a quick look at an edition of the Saundaryalaharī, in Śikhariṇī (17 syllables to a line), and sandhi is broken only between half verses and whole verses. For example, there's a ś  at the end of one half-line followed by a c at the beginning of the next.
