Burmese-Myanmar Orthography
in Romabama


by U Kyaw Tun (UKT) and staff of TIL (Tun Institute of Learning, http://www.tuninst.net ). Start: 2007 July
Based on:
Myanmar Orthography (MOrtho)
by (MLC) Myanmar Language Commission (MLC), Ministry of Education, 1986, pp 292. Editor U Tun Tint.
Myanmar English Dictionary (MEDict)
by MLC, 1993, pp 635. MEDict gives a pronunciation guide in non-IPA script which I have marked /[...]/ to differentiate from Romabama /{...}/

Note: Burmese-Myanmar verbs has {th} as an "after word": it is represented by "underscore" mark _ .
MLC gives 2 possible pronunciations for some cases: /[ch]/ and /[gj]/. They are essentially the same, the /[ch]/] being voiceless and /[gj]/ voiced. For such cases, I have given the pronunciation for individual entry whenever possible leaving some because of possible controversy.
