The aim is to compare three languages: Skt-Dev, Nepali-Dev, and Bur-Myan

I (UKT) am creating this file from Bur-Myan. Gloss in English is mine.
- MLC Burmese Orthography (in Burmese), MLC, 1st ed 1986, ed. U (Dr.) Tun Tint (in Bur-Myan)
Precursor of MLC Myanmar English Dictionaries, 2006 - the standard edition used in my work.
I cannot use the regular dictionaries such as MLC Myanmar English Dictionaries, 2006, or
- Thalun English-Myanmar Dictionary - Thalun-EMD2003 because there are more entries, and would be an over-killed for my work on BEPS languages.

UKT 170809: English gloss are mine. Remember Bur-Myan syntax is generally the opposite of Eng-Lat, e.g. the adjective follows the noun.

Words beginning with Nya'le {a.} ञ as a basic akshara, and Nya'gyi  {a.} ञ ् ञ --> ञ्ञ , as a conjunct are found in Pali-Myan. However, Nya'gyi  {a.}/  as a basic akshara is found only in Bur-Myan, and in Mon-Myan.

Remember also that Bur-Myan has a very simple grammar: no singular nor plural, no time-tense, and no inflexion.

The very first offering during the life-time Gautama Buddha was made by his step-mother and her attendants when they came across the plight of the monks with tattered robes because of the weather conditions during the rains. The cotton was hastily spun, dyed, and woven into robes during one night, and offered to the monks in the morning.
