Tuchis is Yiddish for butt. Senseness is not a word. What do you mean?

@pathfinder I have no Idea what that means

Here’s a good start. “Burmese is a tonal language with three main tones (high, low and creaky) and two other tones (stopped and reduced). The tones are indicates in writing using diacritics or special letters.”

Learning it shouldn’t take more than 50 or 60 years.

Edit for whoever wrote the ^^ ...tones are indicated in…

This is really interesting, no matter where blakemasnor has disappeared to.

“Tones:
Burmese is a tonal language. This means that all syllables in Burmese have prosodic features that are an integral part of their pronunciation. Prosodic contrasts involve not only pitch, but also phonation, intensity (loudness), duration, and vowel quality.”

“Thank you”: Kyeizu tin ba de.

the casual way to say thank you is chae su be or chae su tin ba de but the polite way is chae su tin ba de shin
remember the word su is said shortly be is not the english word be but the e is said alot like the vowel e and also only use the polite way to your family, and non other. and use chae su be to only your closest friends, if you say this to some burmese people they would think it’s rude.
