The nasals c5, as a group presents an un-surmountable problem because of the lack of graphemes and phonemes in Eng-Lat. For 5 of Bur-Myan, Eng-Lat has only 2. Because of this, I subdivide the nasals into:

Semi-nasals: /ŋ/ (velar),  /ɲ/ (palatal), /ɳ/ (retroflex)
True-nasals: /n/ (dental), /m/ (bilabial).

In particular r1c5, the velar nasal /ŋ/ which has some /g/ very prominent in Mon-Myan, was the problem until I change the nuclear vowel V in CV by adopting the convention shown below.

Sonority Scale, Noise Intensity, TIL Definitions

UKT 180715: Because of rarity of Hissing and Hushing fricatives, Bur-Myan is low in Noise intensity. Because of this, BEPS has to be adjusted when Skt-Dev and Engl-Latin are incorporated, and I can no longer rely on IPA.
