Burmese. A Comprehensive Grammar


Burmese: A Comprehensive Grammar is a complete reference guide to modern Burmese grammar. It presents a fresh and thorough description of the language, concentrating on the real patterns of use in modern Burmese.

The volume is organized to promote a thorough understanding of Burmese grammar. It offers a stimulating analysis of the complexities of the language, with clear explanations. Throughout, the emphasis is on Burmese as used by present-day native speakers.

Features include:

  • detailed treatment of the common grammatical structures and parts of speech
  • particular attention to areas of confusion and difficulty
  • all examples given in Burmese script, IPA phonetic transcription, and English
  • glossary of linguistic terminology

The Grammar is the ideal reference source for intermediate to advanced learners and users of Burmese and will remain the standard reference work for years to come.
