 Local Language

Thai language has local languages like other languages do.
For example, the speaking speed or words are different from the north, south, northeast and east. In the south, they speak fast, and in the north, they speak slowly.

I guess the language spoken in Bangkok is their common language.

  • example 1) krab / ka (see "Basics of conversation")
    " krab " or " ka " added at the end of the sentence is changed into " jao " in the north and " hi " in the east.
  • example 2) aroi
    " aroi " of " aroi mark " when you want to say " very delicious ".
     In the north, they express this as " rum tae tae jao ", in the south " roi jang huu ".
