Abstract

In this chapter, important parts of the Burmese lexicon are introduced without attempting a complete coverage of all lexical fields. Rather, categories that are important in the grammatical structure or have special cultural relevance are included here. In some lexical fields, the examples presented are more numerous than in others so as to convey a coherent picture of the lexical categories, but in no case is the presentation to be taken as exhaustive.
