The Original Thai-English Language Cognate Dictionary & Learning Tool is an essential supplementary resource for speaking, reading, and understanding the Thai language in the quickest possible time. Written for both beginners and intermediate learners, it is the first English-Thai loanword dictionary and learning tool. In this book, you'll quickly learn the most commonly used English loanwords, as well as Thai words that rhyme with, or sound similar to, their English counterpart or a related word. For example, the Thai word for bell is grìng, which is similar to what a bell does: ring. For the beginning student, these similar words make it much easier to dive into the Thai language without experiencing that common feeling that you're drowning in a sea of strange sounds. Learning Thai becomes less intimidating and more fun. It also makes all those Thai words which aren't similar sounding easier to remember. With this book you'll also learn how English words sometimes change when pronounced by Thai people. These differences are important to know when having conversations with new Thai friends, acquaintances, and colleagues. Hundreds of colloquial Thai sentences make this book a valuable tool for intermediate students. Humorous and useful examples are combined in equal measure, so that you can better communicate and enjoy the authentic Thai lifestyle. The loanword (cognate) vocabulary provides easy practice for students who are starting to read Thai, while the sample sentences offer excellent reading practice for those further along. In addition, useful language notes are provided covering areas such as grammar, pronunciation, and root words, as well valuable tips on speaking the Isaan dialect. An appendix including hundreds of Thai-English loanwords involving technology, the sciences, and proper names is also included.

About the Author:

LivingHour.org is an independent Thailand-based publisher that believes in the old adage that when you learn a new language, you acquire a new soul. We are dedicated to publishing unique Thai & Isaan language books that focus on the colloquial language of Thailand, as well as books that provide fresh perspectives on Progressive Spirituality, regardless of one's faith. While most other Thai language book publishers produce books written by Thai and foreign authors who no longer live in Thailand, we publish books and ebooks based on our experience of living exclusively for the past ten years in the provinces of Central and Northeast Thailand. Our language books truly represent the street and workplace level Thai language spoken today, helping expats, English teachers, and tourists more fully enjoy their stay in the Kingdom.
