How to say “Every” in Thai:

⏰Every time = ทุกครั้ง /tuk krang/; ทุกที /tuk tee/
📍Everywhere = ทุกที่ /tuk tee/
📆Every day = ทุกวัน /tuk wan/
😊Every one = ทุกคน /tuk kon/
🏀Everything = ทุกอย่าง /tuk yang/

Common Meats in Thailand

What meat is it? = เนื้ออะไร /nuea a-rai/

Also-Mean (แปลงี้ก็ได้เหรอ)

อะไร /a-rai/ doesn’t mean “what” only. It also means something, anything, and nothing!

Some might translate “something” as “บางสิ่ง” /bang sing/ or “บางอย่าง” /bang yang/; it’s correct but might be too formal. In many situations that you want to say “something” or “anything”, you can just say “อะไร” /a-rai/. 

ใคร /krai/ doesn’t mean “who” only. It also means “anyone” and “no one”!

✏️Note: “Who” in this case is the “who” question word only. (That’s why we marked a tiny “?” on it.) For the English “who” that is not a question (…those who…, for example), don’t say “ใคร” /krai/. Say “คน” /kon/ instead! You can say “คน” /kon/ for “anyone” and “no one” in this case, too.

🔎มีใครโทรมามั้ย /mee krai to ma mai?/

= มีคนโทรมามั้ย /mee kon to ma mai?/

🔎ไม่มีใครโทรมา /mai mee krai to ma/

= ไม่มีคนโทรมา /mai mee kon to ma/

Yes! You can “eat” water and medicine. In the Thai people’s mind, to eat (กิน /kin/) simply means to put something in the mouth and swallow it. Whether you chew or not, doesn’t matter. 

💡Tip: You can say the three sentences in the first pic to your sick friend to show that you care.

In the Thai language, most liquids are called:

💧น้ำ /nam/ + _ _ _  

💧👁️น้ำ /nam/ + ตา /ta/ (eye)= tear😭

💧🐝น้ำ /nam/ + ผึ้ง /pueng/ (bee) = honey🍯

💧🛢️น้ำ /nam/ + มัน /man/ (oily) = oil🛢️

💧⬇️น้ำ /nam/ + ตก /tok/ (fall) = waterfall

💧⬆️น้ำ /nam/ + พุ /pu/ (spout) = fountain⛲️

Some are not liquid, but they consist of liquid:

💧🪨น้ำ /nam/ + แข็ง /kaeng/ (hard) = ice🧊

💧🌴น้ำ /nam/ + ตาล /tan/ (sugarpalm) = sugar🧂

See? We Thais always name things simply. 5555

Fun Compound Words (คำประสมแสนสนุก)

ถุง /tung/ means “bag”. When you’re wearing gloves and socks, you put your hands and feet in the “bags”. 

The last one ถุงยาง is not the case here, though. 555 It’s actually in the same word set as ถุงพลาสติก /tung plastic/ ( = plastic bag = bag that is made of plastic).

🌊ทะเล /ta-lay/ = sea

🏖ทราย /sai/ = sand 

🌊+🏖=🏜ทะเลทราย /ta-lay sai/ = desert

🌫หมอก /mork/ = fog

🌊+🌫=🌁ทะเลหมอก /ta-lay mork/ = sea of fog

Thai is easy! ภาษาไทยง่ายมาก ๆ 😁

  • ภูเขา _ _ _ _ _

⛰ภูเขา /pu-kao/ = mountain

🔥ไฟ /fai/ = fire ⤵️

⛰+🔥=🌋ภูเขาไฟ /pu-kao fai/ = volcano

🧊น้ำแข็ง /nam-kaeng/ = ice⤵️

⛰+🧊=🗻ภูเขาน้ำแข็ง /pu-kao nam-kaeng/ = iceberg

See? Thai is so simple. ง่ายเนอะ 😁

Slang (ศัพท์แสลง)

  • นม

นม /nom/ means both “milk” and “breast” in Thai, so be careful, guys.😂
