READING

You will read this word ကျွန်တော် as [cun taw] when you are reading as it is written, but it is sometimes read or said [cun daw] and sometimes [câ naw].  Notice that the nasalized vowel [un] is weakened and the following consonant [t] changes to the nasalized consonant [n].  Nasalization of the consonant following after a nasalized vowel usually occurs when a speaker says a word fast.
