Dear list members,
I asked for an explanation of the sandhi *namaḥ nārāyaṇāya *becomes *namo
I.e why *aḥ* before a soft consonent or *a* becomes *o* .
If it is of interest to anyone, I've found a linguistic explanation of this
in W.S. Allen's book:
THE THEORETICAL, PHONETIC, AND HISTORICAL BASES OF WORD-JUNCTION IN SANSKRIT
on pages 70-71 .
