    Lum-Bark (adj) = Difficult (situation, position).

    Lum (as in dumb)
    Bark (as in what grows on tree trunks). Middle tone on Lum, Low tone on Bark.

    = L (initial consonant sound)
    = Um (vowel sound)
    = B (initial consonant sound)
    = Ar, (or Ahh) (vowel sound)
    = K (final consonant sound)
    There are 10 types of people in the world:
    Those that understand BINARY and those that dont.

    ŧ is + ŧ = lai (rising tone) long (middle tone) = flow + down.
    For Ӻҡ, "m" comes from the circle over .
    Thai has a special writing system. You can learn it through learningthai.com or other materials.
    I still remember this, when my English teacher taught us at a high school, quoting from Bernard Shaw&#39;s argument over the writing system of English language, that "ghoti" is "fish" because "enouGH," "wOmen" and "staTIon" are allowed. English has an odd system. Thai has its own.

    I&#39;m not so sure about the "circle over the " causing the "M" sound. Isn&#39;t it the whole vowel without the ? (Sorry but you can&#39;t write a vowel unless there is a consonant to go with it)&#33;

    = Um
    = Lum

    Now then...You could also spell fish "phoche" (photo women quiche)&#33;

    But the winner in my book is...

    Potato = GHOUGHPHTHEIGHTTEEAU

    P as in Hiccough
    O as in Dough
    T as in Phthisis
    A as in Neighbour
    T as in Gazette
    O as in Plateau
