This second volume of the Manuel de birman (Burmese language manual) has two objectives : to expand on the syntax explained in the first volume, and to offer in French an explanation of Burmese grammar. Written and spoken Burmese are differentiated by their grammatical forms, as explained and illustrated in numerous examples taken from everyday situations and works of literature. This volume is for anyone who wants to deepen their understanding of the language.
