SEAlang Library Karen Dictionary
About the SEAlang Library Sgaw Karen Dictionary Resources 
These resources are based on the Drum Karen-English Student Dictionary (Drum Publication Group, 2008).  It was derived from an earlier Drum work, the Junior English-Karen Dictionary (2nd edition, 1999).
   The Karen languages are tonal, and belong to the Tibeto-Burman group of the Sino-Tibetan family.  Besides Sgaw (sometimes S'gaw or Paganyaw), the other primary Karen dialects are Pwo and Pa'o.  They are not mutually intelligible.
You must use a Unicode 5.1-compliant font.  Please read the Burmese/Karen/Mon/Shan Unicode 5.1 Font Notes.
Please note that this release is part of our final testing process.  Please excuse any remaining errors in labeling content, numbering homonyms, or conversion to Karen or IPA.
   A phonetic representation has not be derived yet.
   Try searching for "speak" (as text).
