Sometimes ligatures of consonants with vowel diacritics may be found, e.g.:

Grantha has two ways of representing consonant clusters. Sometimes, consonants in a cluster may form ligatures.

Ligatures are normally preferred whenever they exist. If no ligatures exist, "stacked" forms of consonants are written, just as in Kannada and Telugu, with the lowest member of the stack being the only "live" consonant and the other members all being vowelless. Note that ligatures may be used as members of stacks also.

विशिष्ट प्रकार:

चित्र:Grantha y.svg ‹ya› when final in a cluster, and चित्र:Grantha r.svg ‹ra› when non-initial become Grantha yvat.svg and Grantha rvat.svg respectively. These are often called "ya-phalaa" and "ra-vattu" in other Indic scripts.


चित्र:Grantha r.svg ‹ra› as initial component of a cluster becomes Grantha reph.svg(called Reph as in other Indic scripts) and is shifted to the end of the cluster but placed before any "ya-phalaa".
