About the Thai Language

Thai is the nationwide and official code of Thailand and the mom language of the Thai people, Thailand's dominant ethnic group. Thai is a member of the Tai group of the Tai-Kadai code family. The Tai-Kadai languages are thought to have originated in what exactly is today southern China, and some linguists have proposed hyperlinks to the Austroasiatic, Austronesian, or Sino-Tibetan code families. It is a tonal and analytic code. The mixture of tonality, a complex orthography, relational markers along with a distinctive phonology could create Thai difficult to discover for those who never absolutely speak a associated code.

Standard Thai, sometimes known as Central Thai or Siamese, is the official code of Thailand, spoken by about 65 million persons including speakers of Bangkok Thai . Khorat Thai is spoken by about 400,000 (1984) in Nakhon Ratchasima; it occupies a linguistic position someplace between Central Thai and Isan on a dialect continuum, and might be considered a variant or dialect of either.

In addition to Standard Thai, Thailand is house to additional connected Tai languages, including:

* Isan (Northeastern Thai), the code of the Isan area of Thailand, considered by some to be a dialect of the Lao code, which it rather carefully resembles (although it is actually created in the Thai alphabet). It is spoken by about 15 million folks (1983).
* Nyaw code, spoken largely in Nakhon Phanom Province, Sakhon Nakhon Province, Udon Thani Province of Northeast Thailand.
* Galung code, spoken in Nakhon Phanom Province of Northeast Thailand.
* Lü (Tai Lue, Dai), spoken by about 78,000 (1993) in northern Thailand.
* Northern Thai (Lanna, Kam Meuang, or Thai Yuan), spoken by about 6 million (1983) in the formerly independent kingdom of Lanna (Chiang Mai).
* Phuan, spoken by an unknown amount of individuals in central Thailand and Isan.
* Phu Thai, spoken by about 156,000 around Nakhon Phanom Province (1993).
* Shan (Thai Luang, Tai Long, Thai Yai), spoken by about 56,000 in north-west Thailand along the edge with all the Shan States of Burma (1993).
* Song, spoken by about 20,000 to 30,000 in central and northern Thailand (1982).
* Southern Thai (Pak Dtai), spoken about 5 million (1990).
* Thai Dam, spoken by about 20,000 (1991) in Isan and Saraburi Province.

Many of these languages are spoken by bigger numbers outside of Thailand. Many speakers of dialects and minority languages speak Central Thai also, because it is the code employed in universities and universities all across the kingdom.

Numerous languages not connected to Thai are spoken within Thailand by ethnic minority hill tribespeople. These languages include Hmong-Mien (Yao), Karen, Lisu, and others.

Standard Thai is composed of many distinct registers, types for different social contexts:

* Street Thai : casual, without polite terms of address, as utilized between close relatives and neighbors.
* Elegant Thai : official and created variation, involves respectful terms of address; utilized in simplified shape in magazines.
* Rhetorical Thai: chosen for public talking.
* Religious Thai: (heavily influenced by Sanskrit and Pāli) selected when discussing Buddhism or addressing monks.
* Royal Thai : (influenced by Khmer) chosen when addressing members of the royal family or describing their escapades.

Many Thais will speak at just the initial and 2nd degrees, though they might recognize the others.
