About Burmese

Burmese is the principle language of Burma (Myanmar). It is estimated that 22 million people speak it as a first language and several millions more (the minorities) as a second language.

The Burmese script is based on sanskrit writing from India. It is very a rounded script as the palm leaves that the monks used to write on would split if a straight line were made.

It is a tonal language; the pitch of the voice is altered when saying the vowels thereby changing the meaning of words.

The word order of Burmese is markedly different to English. English is a Subject-Verb-Object language; we would say John eats apples. By contrast Burmese is a Subject-Object-Verb language; in Burma you would say John apples eats.
