    Re: 1000 most common thai words used

    Excellent! Thanks for the translations. Its a shame that ive already translated (manually) up until , although yours is far better . Any chance that you will post the rest of the words?
    Ps. ive noticed that some of the phonetics are incorrect. e.g. ԡ (ga-si-gon rom)

    Re: 1000 most common thai words used

    I finally decided to tackle this list. I was curious to see how many words I knew. The final grade is that I know 75% of them without looking them up. Not bad, but still a loooong way to go.

    There are a few words that I can't find in any dictionaries. I think at least a few are typos. Can anyone help??

    дҹ
    йǹ
    й
    ا
    ٴ
    Ѵغѹ
    ໹ (a misspelling for ??)
    ¹
    (a misspelling for ??)

    (I also counted 996 words, rather than 1,000...although, I wouldn't be surprised if I miscounted. I counted page by page to count my errors and figure out my grade)

    Extrapolating out on your score, your total passive (receptive) vocabulary has to be in the multithousands; something many farangs would like to have. But you sound as convinced as I am, that a truckload (10,000+) is needed to comfortably read the good stuff meant for native speakers.

    I'd help with the words you listed, but I don't want to know what they are before I finish testing myself. I'll be doing it in chunks. I just started with the gor gais - 64/80.

    I can help with some of them which are mainly alternative spellings rather than misspellings.

    дҹ = is an alternative spelling of дҹ

    йǹ is an alternative spelling of ǹ

    й is an alternative spelling of

    ¹ = to add to; to augment; to supplement

    is an alternative spelling of not s misspelling

    All information was found in the thai-language.com dictionary.
