## Bu

1. ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 code for Burma before it changed its name to Myanmar. This was the code used in international transactions to and from Burmese bank accounts.

2. ISO 3166-2 geocode for Burma. This was used as an international standard for shipping to Burma.

In both cases, the code is obsolete.

If the width of the vertical streets adjacent to the Imperial Palace is 100 bu, the distance between the centers of streets on both sides will be just 2,000 bu x 1,000 bu. In addition, the horizontal width (B) of the large blocks located on both sides of the Imperial Palace are divided into three.
The calculated measure is 2,250 bu D 3,375 bu = 5,625 bu, which is 164.52 bu shorter than the measured value of 5,889.52 bu.
The breadth of the street alongside the city wall, including the thickness of the city wall, is 50 bu. The east-west length of the left and right large blocks next to the Imperial Palace, which are divided into nine bo, will be 2,200 bu (2,250 bu-50 bu = 2,200 bu = 700 bu + 50 bu + 700 bu + 50 bu + 700 bu, where the width of a bo = 700 bu, and the width of the street = 50 bu).
If a situation described by a progressive sentence needs input of energy in order to obtain that situation, then it is predicted by the proposed aspectual selection of bu that such a sentence should be incompatible with bu. In fact, the Chinese sentence (10) can be taken as evidence for the position that progressive sentences are dynamic rather than stative as Bertinetto (1994) and Nordlander (1997) have argued.
But such sentences are incompatible with bu. The negation marker for such sentences can only be mei.
The first observation is that not just locative-inversion sentences but many other non-locative-inversion sentences with zhe are incompatible with bu. This is illustrated by (13) and (14).
Age, place of residence, and water sources were associated with BU. Sex was not associated with BU.
In this model, age, place of residence, and water sources were associated with BU. The risk for BU was high in children 3-4 years old (OR 6.74, 95% CI 2.67-17.03), those living in Oueme (OR 2.78, 95% CI 1.35-5.70) or other places (OR 9.74, 95% CI 2.27-41.76), and those using unprotected water (OR 2.27, 95% CI 1.22-4.22).
The 30- to 49-year age group had the lowest risk for BU.
In section 3.4, we introduced the interpretation condition (IC), which governs the interpretation of bu. With the help of the IC, scope interaction, and the nature of bu, perfective -le, and manner phrases, in this section, we will explain facts (i) and (ii) and the well-formedness of sentences with bu directly negating the verb.
The ill-formedness of sentence (2c) can be explained by the IC and the scope interaction between perfective -le and bu. As there is no focus in (2c), bu will negate the adjacent verb chi `eat'.
