Lesson 50: Burmese words with Single Tones 'Wet', 'Set', Mad', 'Yet' Group

Unlike the words with tone variations, there are eight categories of single tone words in Burmese. Single tones in most cases are spelled by the consonant character accompanied by a closing character and small "c" shape "thut" on top of that closing character. The Single tone category that sounds like "At", "Bet", "Det", "Get" can be spelled with the closing character ka1 plus "thut" : က်.

Consonant modification symbols are added for words like "Jet": ဂျက်. Tone change symbols are not used.

Remember, there are no closing sounds in Burmese. So, unless otherwise indicated, the word like "Jet": ဂျက် should be pronounced without closing "t" consonant.

Some of those single tones sound and romanized like existing English words. If you are viewing this page with google translator, beware that those words meant to show how they sound in English will be translated into your language, which was not the intention. Be sure to refer back to the original English page to see how the words sound.

As with other Burmese vocabulary entries starting from lesson 36, the listing is quite comprehensive and almost like a mini-dictionary useful for spelling check when writing in Burmese. Just pick up the words that interest you for learning purposes, or use these lessons in combination with Google Custom Search Engine for dictionary look up of words when needed.
