Myanmar LetterLetter from Myanmar
Burmese or Myanmaric writing is a Brahmi-like syllabary which most likely dates from the Mon typeface of the twelfth centenary. As with other Brahmi fonts, a singular character or character is a complete syllable containing the intrinsic /a/ slash. However, the only difference is the character a, which is a small voice at the beginning of a part.
The above graphic shows the typical translation of the text in readable text, which is the same as the initial Hindi pronunciation of the characters. But since the twelfth Century AD there have been telephonetic changes, many of the characters no longer reflect the sound they had 800 years ago. Therefore, the contemporary sound representing characters is indicated in the text in shaded shades of amber.
Syllable symbols with other vocals than /a/ are displayed by diacritical characters or extra lines near the liter. Since Burmese is a sound vocabulary, these diacritical signs bear not only the vocal value, but also the notes. That means that one and the same consonant can be expressed by several diacritical signs, each of which has a different beep.
Myanmar has three main notes, namely "creaking", "high" and "low", and therefore each of them has a set of vocal diakritics, as shown in the following table: Notice: The "creaking" sound is a high pitched sound with a small length of vowels ending with a closed glot. As their name suggests, the other two notes are high and low notes, and both have long vowels.
I used the character ma in the above example, but the same system works for all other characters, also for the Vocal character a. So to type other words and/or sounds than the creaking /a/ at the starting point of a term, you can use the same sentence of diacritical characters on the character.
There' s also another sentence of vocals characters named Acchara to spell vocals at the beginning of certain words (usually words taken from India ), but not all vocal and sound compositions have Acchhara-characters. In order to depict a consistonant at the end of a word, a hook-like line is placed over the character to silence the sibling.
In Brahmi, you can also use consonants clusters with the characters y, w, r and even more. For these cases, specific variations of these characters are used:
