About Burmese

Burmese (မြန်မာဘာသာ), or Myanmar, is the official language of Myanmar. It belongs to the Sino-Tibetan language family, and is related to Chinese and Tibetan.

The Burmese script is used for writing Burmese and several other languages of Myanmar. As one of many scripts derived from the ancient Brahmi system of India, it is categorized as an abugida, and unlike alphabets such as Greek or Latin, is not written with complete vowels. The 33 consonants of Burmese are written in full, while vowels and tones are represented with the use of diacritics which modify the consonant letter. Burmese is written from left to right and requires no spaces between words, although modern writing usually contains spaces after each clause to enhance readability.

The Burmese script is descended from Brahmi, most likely via the Pallava script. This was adapted in the areas around the Irrawaddy River valley to write Mon, the historically predominant language of what is now Myanmar. The earliest known inscriptions using the Burmese script, which evolved from Mon, are from the 11th century. Unlike some other Brahmic scripts which have not undergone significant orthographic reform, Burmese writing changed in line with developments in the pronunciation of the language. The most recent standardization occurred in the 1970s.
