Anacka-(also Anachkam) - Unstruck Sound

nādabindumayaṃ vāpi kiṃ candrārdhanirodhikāḥ |
anackaṃ vā kiṃ vā śaktisvarūpakam || 4 ||

Mark Dyczkowski: A pure consonant without any vowel sound and hence unutterable
Swami Lakshmanjoo and John Hughes transliterate it as anackam
Swami Satyasangananda Saraswati as anachkam
Andre Padoux, in Vac, uses anacka

See the interesting discussion between Lakshmanjoo and John Hughes in their Vijnanabhairava, page 5. (available from Universal Shaiva Fellowship). Lakshmanjoo describes anackam as “movement-less wheel of movement” and relates it to spanda and aspanda.
