Yangon | ရန်ကုန်

Yangon, the home of Shwedagon Pagoda with the population of over 5 million is the largest city in Myanmar. It was founded by Mon people in early 11th century, and it was known as ဒဂုံ | da1-gome2 - Dagon.

In AD 1755, King အလောင်းဘုရား | a-loun3 pfa1-ya3 - Alaungpaya from upper Burma conquered Dagon, and renamed it ရန်ကုန်| yan2 gome2 - Yangon ( hostilities + run out.)

After the Second Anglo-Burmese War of 1852, the British renamed the town as Rangoon. It was the name by which the city was known internationally for the next 137 years.

In 1989, the official name of the city was changed back to Yangon. Less and less people use the old word "Rangoon" as time goes by. But, in some computer systems such as IATA airport codes, it still remains today as RGN.

Lesson 48: Burmese words with vowel 'Ome'

The list of Burmese words with the vowel 'Ome' sound are given below in Burmese alphabetical order in the same sequence as in Myanmar dictionary.

For words with consonant "s", "n" variant must be used as in "sone3", but "m" variant must be used for words with the consonants "d" and "g" as in "dome3", and "gome2". For the rest, it is possible to romanize with both variations.

In this phonetic group, the character or the modified consonant is first shifted into vowel u1 group using | ta1-choun3-ngin2 at the bottom. E.g., ကု | ku1.

Then, shift the word into this vowel ome group by using either | thay3-thay3-tin2 on top, or use န် | na1-thut on the right side. E.g., ကုန် | kone2 as in ရန်ကုန် | yan2 gome2.

Words using ဏ် | na1 ji3 thut in place of na1-thut is less common. In a very rare case, the word ends with ဉ် | nya1-ga1-lay3 thut.

As with many other vowel groups, add tone change symbol | out-myit at the bottom to change into the first tone.

To change into the third tone from the second tone, add | shay1-ga1-pout on the right side.

Ome1 - Ome2 - Ome3 | အုန့် - အုန် - အုန်း
