Burmese is a Sino-Tibetan language spoken in Myanmar, where it is an official language. It is spoken by over 40 million people worldwide. The government of Myanmar designates it as the Myanmar language, but most English speakers continue to refer to the language as Burmese, after Burma, the former name of Myanmar. The Burmese alphabet is derived from the Brahmic scripts of South Indian languages.
This dictionary’s two-way format makes it useful for both English and Burmese speakers. Each entry includes Burmese script as well Romanization (common sense phonetic pronunciation) for English speakers. Burmese ELL (English-Language Learner) students can look up the meaning of English words they don't recognize, and also translate their thoughts and writing in Burmese to English using this dictionary.
