    พละ

    I don't understand!

    When they say พระ, the ร was treated like cluster "phra" or "phla".
    But when they say พละ, it's pronounced "pha-la"

    So I try พล-พร with other words (e.g. พร้า, พริ้ม, พรุ, พลอง, พลอย, พลี, etc.) and found out that all words, ล and ร were treated like clusters.

    Then WHY พละ was pronounced like that?

    พระ is pronounced "phra" meanining a monk, but it is sometimes pronounced "phla" by lazy people. (Sorry &#33

    พละ is pronounced พะละ "pa la" meaning strength.
    We never pronounce it "pla", krab!

    This really is a very annoying thing. I have to check dictionaries all times. ปลัด is palat. And many -รร- words. For some words, a single word has both.

    Actually, that's a rule that even Thai people can make mistake in pronouncing. When I was young , I used to ask my teacher why it is like that also. But the teacher said that It's ,in fact, bali-sansaklit (ancient language that's a root of today's Thai language) There's a rule, but we cannot apply the same rules in some situations. So what you can do is practise more and more. You'll get more experience and that will improve your skill. I think this is the same as other languages. Some rules caonnot be used sometimes.

    Well I think with every language there will be several rules that are broken for no apparent reason in some situations. I know english is full of them, I teach english and it never fails that in a lesson where I'm giving a new rule I always accidently give an example in which that rule is broken.
    the only certainty is uncertainty
