    It seems that this person is really down on Fern.

    In English we might say;

    "That piece Fern is a bad character. You should quietly play M(MSN Messenger?) at another level. She really is a floozy!!"

    Depending on the context ѧ is a word which can be used as an insult.

    "Nang Fern bad habits she secretly I play rhinoceros M Chi class again other."

    Re: Need help with translation

    So can anyone talk about this word ô = floozy??

    I got the gist of the sentence, except every dictionary I looked in had rhinoceros for ô I figured that must be slang for something, but I would never have guessed floozy.

    I'd love to hear more explanation...thanks!

    The thai-language.com dictionary doesn't say floozy, but as well as rhinoceros it also lists it as a colloquial word meaning to be snooty, snobby or pretentious. http://www.thai-language.com/id/133318

    Re: Need help with translation

    I just dug out some of my old Thai lesson work sheets.

    These are lists of word definitions that I compiled from several dictionaries back then:-

    ô.....Rhinoceros
    ô Rhinoceros fish

    But also:- Flirtatious, affected, slut, slutty, floozy. pretentious,

    Used when describing a woman (or a Kathoei) with those characteristics.

    Another sheet says that ѧ is an informal or contemptuous title for a female. Derogatory shortened form of Naang ҧ

    sorry to disagree a little bit here :

    "That piece Fern is a bad character. " --> completely agree and nicely translated

    but the second sentence has nothing to do with quietly chatting MSN at another level, but that "she secretly uses my ( or Chan's) MSN (=msn login) again, the slut !"

    here doesn't mean "level", but is just "I"(normally written as ѹ) or possibly the name "Chan"

    about the word ô that is been talked about : I didn't know the word floozy, had to look it up. But a word that is better known for non-English native speakers (like me) would be slutty. (is slang and has nothing to do with rinos 555)

    Thanks for that kpoyd. There's no way I would have picked as meaning anything else but "level" and your explanation makes it clear that refers to Fern, not the person that the message is being sent to.

    Re: Need help with translation

    And because ô is sometimes an insulting Word, Thai people often say, when using it as an insult, because they don't want to speak this Word out clearly:

    Ժ

    because the Vowel looks like the Number "11", in Thai "Ժ", followed by the Consonant "" and then ""
