- Thai Flashcards. Thai language, alphabet and pronunciation. Thai is a Tai-Kadai language spoken by about 65 million people mainly in Thailand (ประเทศไทย), and also in the Midway Islands, Singapore, the UAE and the USA Thai is closely related to Lao, and northern dialects of Thai are more or less mutually intelligible with Lao, particularly the Lao spoken in northern Thailand.
Thai vocabulary includes many words from Pali, Sanskrit and Old Khmer. Thai alphabet (ตัวอักษรไทย) The Thai alphabet was probably derived from, or at least influenced by, the Old Khmer alphabet. According to tradition it was created in 1283 by King Ramkhamhaeng (พ่อขุนรามคำแหงมหาราช). The Thai alphabet is used to write Thai, Sanskrit, Pali, and a number of minority languages spoken in Thailand.

The benefits of learning to read the Thai script from the start are enormous. This is in part due to the fact that it is very difficult to transliterate (or romanize) the Thai alphabet. Thai has 28 (actually more, but just 28 that we need to worry about) different written vowel “shapes” each which represent a single vowel sound. This is very different than in English where 5 letters (a, e, i, o, u) are used to represent a number of sounds across multiple dialects and accents.
