Here are some loan-words written with the nasalized dipthong ေ ာင် [aun].
|ဂျော့တောင်း||George Town (Eng)|
|ဟောင်ကောင်||Hong Kong (Chinese)|
You will read this word ကောင်းကောင်း as [kàun kàun] when you are reading as it is written, but it is sometimes read or said [kàun gàun] and sometimes [kàun ngàun]. Notice that the consonant [k] that follows the nasalized dipthong changes to the nasalized consonant [ng]. Nasalization of the consonant following after a nasalized vowel usually occurs when a speaker says a word fast.
