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 connected code.

Standard Thai, sometimes known as Central Thai or Siamese, is the official code of Thailand, spoken by about 65 million individuals 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.audiobook
