Lesson 54: Burmese words with Single Tones: 'Bake', 'Cake', 'Make' Group

Vocabulary list continues for single tone words that sound like 'Bake', 'Cake', 'Make'. Those words should be pronounced without closing consonants. So, when the word is romanized as 'bake', do not stress on the closing 'k' sound.

Most of the words in this category will have | lone3-ji3-tin2 on top of the character or modified consonant character with either တ် | ta1 thut or ပ် | pa1 thut on the right side.

Less common words with Pali roots are spelled with | tha1 ji3 with hidden | thut on top , and is equivalent to သ်သ | tha1-thut plus tha1. For example, weight measurement ပိဿာ | pate-tha2 can be broken down as ပိသ် + သာ | pate + tha2.

In double-stacked words, it is possible to get this sound with က စ ဇ တ ဒ ပ ဗ | ka1 - sa1 - za1 - ta1 - da1 - pa1 - ba1 on the right side of the consonant with hidden | thut on top. For example, နိဗ္ဗာန် | nate-bun2, (Nirvana or Nibbana), the ultimate goal Buddhist practice, can be broken down as နိဗ် + ဗာန် | nate + bun2.

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.
