Burmese & English Compact Dictionary

This practical Burmese-English, English-Burmese dictionary is designed to help English speakers communicate in Burmese, whether or not you can read the Burmese alphabet. All Burmese words are listed in both Burmese script and an easy-to-learn, English-like pronunciation system that fully expresses the Burmese sound, including the tones and everything else you need to speak and understand Burmese words correctly.

Unlike traditional dictionaries, there are three sections: you can look up an English word in the English section, look up a Burmese word you read using the Burmese Script section, or look up a Burmese word you hear by its sound in the unique Burmese Sound section.
