For example, {ကွန်း} means "house" while {ကွမ်း} means "betel" and {ကွံး} does not mean anything at all. Also note that each nasalized vowel has three tones and tone marks are consistant: an "auq ká mjiq"  is added for the low tone and "shégá pauq" for the high falling tone. However, { ွမ်} "wáhswèh má thaq" is never used for level tone and  { ွံ} "wáhswèh thèdhè tin" is never used for high falling tone. For example, see how {မွန်} could be written in three different tones.
