About the Thai language
The Thai language, or Standard Thai, Central Thai or Siamese, is the official and national language of Thailand and the native language of Thailand’s main ethnic group, the Thai people. It is a member of the Tai group of the Tai-Kadai language family, and spoken by over 20 million people, including speakers of Bangkok Thai (which some consider as a different dialect).
Standard Thai is composed with several distinct forms in different social contexts:
Street or common Thai (ภาษาพูด, spoken Thai): informal, without polite terms of address, as used between close relatives and friends.
Elegant or formal Thai (ภาษาเขียน, written Thai): official and written version, includes respectful terms of address; used in simplified form in newspapers.
Rhetorical Thai: used for public speaking.
Religious Thai: (heavily influenced by Sanskrit and Pāli) used when discussing Buddhism or addressing monks.
Royal Thai (ราชาศัพท์): (influenced by Khmer) used when addressing members of the royal family or describing their activities.
Thai is a tonal language with five different tones. For example, different tones in the pronunciation of the word Suea represent different meanings: Suea with a falling tone means a mat, but with a rising tone it means clothes.
In order to make pronunciation easier, the last one or two syllables are often left out.
Like many other languages in the world, Thai is a complex mix of different sources.
At least 60% of the Thai vocabulary is coming from ancient Indian Sanskrit and Pali. With the spread of Buddhism and Brahmanism——most of them are political, philosophical, religious, artistic, psychological and abstract terms. Thai still preserved the original Sanskrit and Pali font of writing. Thus, to write Thai is many times harder than to speak Thai.
