To Eat စား


This word consists of 2 parts. The first part is a consonant စ with the sound /sa/; and the second part is a vowel ာ /à/ that we already learnt.

Practice the 3 basic tones:



  • The "creaky tone", without the vowel, စ means to start.



  • The "low tone", စာ is related to knowledge.



  • The "high tone" စား  is used in this recording to mean eat.
