Study of the Myanmar Language as Used by Ethnic Groups
- This paper is a study on the Myanmar language as used by the Shan, Kachin, Chin and Rakhine among the ethnic groups in Myanmar. The Shan, Kachin, Chin, Rakhine and Kayin groups use their respective ethnic languages as their mother tongue. As they use the Myanmar language for schooling and administrative purposes, and lenrn English as a foreign language, they are multilingual. Since Myanmar is not the mother tongue for these ethnic groups, when they speak the Myanmar language, pronunciation, usage and grammar are different. A linguistic study of the differences has been carried out as research. As a result of this research, we can identify which method to use when teaching the Myanmar language to the ethnic groups.
