Entry {a.} - pronounced as a hisser

UKT 140605: Mon-Myan is the first Austro-Asiatic language I am studying. I have expected its phonology and its vowel-system to be different from those of Bur-Myan - the Tibeto-Burman language. The present entry, the r6c5 member, a non-hissing thibilant in Bur-Myan. However, it is pronounced as a hisser in Mon-Myan, even though the same glyph is used. Whether it is the same as Skt-Dev स sa is yet to be decided after a study of Skt-Dev, an Indo-European language. I cannot rely on the works of others because, so far none has based his or her work solely on phonological approach. Bur-Myan is devoid of inflexions as pointed out by A. W. Lonsdale in his Burmese Grammar and Grammatical Analysis 1899 , Rangoon: British Burma Press, 1899 - BG1899-indx.htm (link chk 140605). In this respect Bur-Myan differs from Pal-Myan. Bur-Myan has no tenses, and no numbers. Not having finished looking into Lonsdale's work, my view on Mon-Myan is only tentative. My study of Haswell and Stevens Mon-Myan vocabulary is pointing out that Mon-Myan might also be devoid of inflexions, tenses, and numbers. I still need to study more.
