What does Ki Kong mean in Thai

Thai Language - Dictionary German - Thai

"Hello" in Thai

Special features of the Thai language

Thai is a so-called tonal language. Most monosyllabic words have different meanings depending on the pitch at which they are pronounced. It's best to ask the locals how to pronounce the words. They are sure to be happy to help you, as they give tourists high credit when they speak Thai.

Another peculiarity of the Thai language is that with words like "Thank you" it is made clear whether women or men are speaking. When a woman says thank you, it says "khop khun kah"; Men say "khop khun khrap".

In the following table you will find some Thai words that you might find useful when ordering in a restaurant or when shopping. Not all locals speak or understand English.
