Vowel Scripts

 ngá thaq/ nyá lè thaq

{င်}  /  {ဉ်}

In the following lessons you are learning three nasalized vowels.

Here is the vowel script {င်} "ngá thaq" which is prounced "in". If you combine the consonant {} and the vowel script {င်}, you will write {မင်} and read it "min". Remember that the vowel script {င်} "ngá thaq" is interchangable with {ဉ်} "nyá thaq" which is also prounced "in". If you combine the consonant { }and the vowel script{ဉ်}, you will write {မဉ်}and read it "min". {င်} "ngá thaq" and {ဉ်} "nyá lè thaq" are used for different meanings. For example, {စင်} means "to be clean" while{ဉ်} means "to arrange." Also note that each nasalized vowel has three tones and tone marks are consistant: an auq ka' mjiq is added for the low tone and shégá pauq for the high falling tone. For example, see how {မင်} could be written in three different tones.
