Group {pa.thut}  

With Base-aksharas

Rime: {up} {p} {aip} {oap} {p} {aup} {eip}
Note: For {pa.thut} there is a strong tendency to spell with {up}. However, my experience in indexing with orthography, tells me that for consistency with other killed members of r5, {ap} is to be preferred.

01. With the base-consonants

Contents of this page


{kup} /|ka'|/ - v. 1. come close. -- MEDict022
{koap} /|kou'|/ - v. 1. arch downward. -- MEDict023

{hkup} /|kha'|/ - v. 1. spoon out or ladle (as in to "ladle soup") -- MEDict065

UKT: I am ashamed to admit that, though I have taught Chemistry for 33 years in various universities in Myanmar, and have always referred to "brass" as {kr:wa}, literally meaning "yellow copper", I have never come across the word {hkup-pra} . This shows the necessity of bringing out works in Burmese-Myanmar to user-friendly forms, and it is my sincere hope that Romabama would be one of the means to do exactly that.
