Basic Thai Vocabulary & Useful Phrases

Note: Thai language has its own script with 44 consonant letters, 15 vowel symbols that combine into at least 28 vowel forms, four tone diacritics, and an own set of numerals. There are many systems for transcribing Thai into the Roman alphabet. While some may be more approachable to foreign learners than others, they’re all not flawless. The phonemic transcription system used here is not officially recognized, unfortunately not always consistent and certainly not flawless either but, in our opinion, comes as close to the original sound as possible. Please scroll down on this extensive page to hopefully find just what you’re looking for.
