Alternative pronunciation "bramha"[edit]

Brahma, and some related words are often pronounced bramha (bramhaputra, ..).

It seems that this variant is more common in Bangladesh / east India.[1] But i don't dare to insert this info based on my tiny personal research, since i am not an indologist.

Brahma vs Brahmā[edit]

Currently, there's an inconsitency just at the beginning of the article perex, ब्रह्म (Brahma) vs Brahmā (ब्रह्मा). (See also older discussion [1]). I wonder which variant is correct. Brahmā (ब्रह्मा) is mentioned in dictionaries (for the masculine personal god meaning), however, i was unable to find even a single occurrence in the Cologne corpus, but hundreds of brahma ones. —Mykhal (talk) 17:50, 31 July 2017 (UTC)

Fixed, to be consistent with hindi and sanskrit pages. —Mykhal (talk) 11:44, 2 August 2017 (UTC)
