Lesson 55: Burmese words with Single Tones: 'Boat', 'Coke', 'Poke' Group

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

Most of the words in this category will have | ta1-choun3-ngin2 at the bottom of the character or modified consonant character with either တ် | ta1-thut or ပ် | pa1-thut on the right side. In exceptional cases, သ် | tha1-thut is used as in ဥပုသ် | u3-boat - Sabbath day observance for the Buddhists.

At least one word in this category is identified with က် | ka1-thut.

There can also be double-stacked words like ပုဂ္ဂိုလ် | POAT-ko2. In this case, it is spelled with | ga1 and hidden thut.

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.
