READING

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