AKAD >> Language+Culture >> Thai
Thai is one of the Sino-Tibetan languages and is a tonal language. Depending on how it is pronounced, the same word can have a number of different meanings. Words that sound the same are differentiated by their intonation. To achieve this, there are five different tones. Many modern terms in Thai have been borrowed from English. However, these words have been adapted to Thai pronunciation rules. This has led to the disappearance or replacement of certain final consonants. In their written form, these words are usually an exact reflection of their English pronunciation. However, the final consonant that cannot be pronounced according to Thai pronunciation rules is identified with the KARAN character.
