Suffixes, prefixes and other bound forms play a prominent part in the grammar of Burmese/Myanmar: they carry almost all the grammatical information contained in a sentence. This dictionary is a comprehensive list and account of those grammatical forms, providing a much needed supplement to the standard Burmese-English dictionaries, where the grammatical forms receive scant attention.
Spoken by about 30 million people, Burmese is the official language of Myanmar (formerly Burma). Completely rewritten and revamped, this new edition is essential reading for anyone spending time in Myanmar.
