      Hello,
      The was an error there. There are five retroflex consonants (.t, .th, .d,
      .dh, .n) which are pronounced with with the tonguetip curled back into the
      front of the palate (which are the most characteristic sounds of india).
      Then there are five dental consonants (t, th, d, dh, n) which are pronounced
      with the tip of the tongue against the back of the upper teeth. The palatal
      consonants are c, ch, j, jh, and ~n (which in the alphabet precede the
      retorflexes).
