Burmese grammar rules

Burmese is an analytic language. Grammatical functions are expressed by word order and by postpositional particles rather than by inflections.

Nouns are not marked for gender, number or case.

Burmese nouns require classifiers to express quantity. There are dozens of classifiers, and one has to learn which classifier goes with which noun. Numerals and classifiers follow the quantified nouns.
