How do you pronounce the Burmese currency "kyat"? Some mispronounced it as "ka1-yet". The word is better romanized as "kjut" with "ut" or "up" sound; not "kyat" with "at" sound. Moreover, if "kj" is used instead of "ky", it will be closer to the actual pronunciation - not "ka1-yat".

Myanmar Kyat comes in the denominations of 50, 100, 200, 500, 1000, 5000, and 10,000. For rough estimations, MMK 1000 Kyat is about 1 USD as of 2014.

Lesson 53: Burmese words with Single Tones 'But', 'Cut', 'Hut' Group

Vocabulary list continues for single tone words that sound like 'But', 'Cut', 'Hut'. Those words should be pronounced without closing consonants. So, when the word is romanized as 'but', do not stress on the closing 't' sound.

Words in this phonetic sound group are spelled with either ပ် | pa1 thut or တ် | ta1 thut, and less frequently with ဒ် | da1 thut as in ရလဒ် | ya1 lut meaning 'result', and with ဘ် | ba1 thut as in လာဘ် | lut MP3 Audio File meaning 'bribe'.

However, there is a condition. The words will sound this way only if those words do not contain consonant modification symbol | wa1 hsweare3. For example, ခပ် and ခတ် are both pronounced khut. But, when wa1 hsweare3 is added, it becomes ခွပ် | khoot. On the other hand, consonant modification symbols | ya1 yit and | ya1 pin1 have no effect on the vowel sound. Examples: ကျပ် and ကြပ်, are both pronounced kjut. MP3 Audio File

There are also exceptions to the rules for those words spelled with တ် | ta1 thut, when the initial consonant is | wa1. For example, ဝတ် meaning "to wear" is pronounced woot, not wut.

Some of those single tone words 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.
