Typing sequence for Burmese
Syllables may consist of several clustered characters which in some cases do not have "obvious" typing sequences. When looking up a burmese term the typing sequence has to match that of the dictionary entry. Some characters like ေ and variants of ဴ are typed before entering the basic grapheme. း is allways added last to a syllable.
Examples: စား (to eat) : စ ာ း - ေဴပာ (to speak) : ေ ဴ ပ ာ.
Especially clusters consiting of more than two characters are not typed in an apparent sequence. Concerning this site, typing sequence for characters that are written above, behind or below the basic grapheme is behind - above - below.
Examples: ေရဒီယို (radio) : ေ ရ ဒ ီ ယ ိ ု - ခဵႂိ (sweet) : ခ ဵ ႂ ိ.
The character ႀ constitutes an exception. It is allways typed directly after the basic grapheme.
Example: ရႀိ (to be, to exist) : ရ ႀ ိ
