Thai Reference Grammar: The Structure of Spoken Thai
by James Higbie and Snea Thinsan
- written to meet the need of students and teachers of the Thai language
for information on advanced sentence structure. The book is divided into
chapters based on common grammatical-structural categories. There are over
500 separate topics, and the most important feature is the sample sentences
for each topic, of which there are over 2,000. These sentences are not stuffy,
old-fashioned grammar examples, but samples of typical, idiomatic spoken Thai.
The authors, an American and a Thai both with advanced degrees in linguistics
and language teaching, analysed thousands of Thai sentences to formulate clear
and concise explanations for all the important sentence patterns of the Thai
language. Examples are given in both Thai script and transliterated Thai,
written in the English alphabet with no special phonetic symbols. Tones are
marked with a special font that shows the level of the sound of each word,
essential to pronunciation in tonal languages like Thai.
- contains over 110,000 words and phrases, and 120,000 translations,
capturing the idiomatic, colloquial, spoken and written character
of English and its equivalents in Thai. There are also appendices
on useful phrases, English irregular verbs, the characteristics of the
Thai language, and key government organizations. Aimed at both Thai
and English native speakers working and translating from English into
Thai, and is ideal for advanced Thai learners who want to develop their
Thai language skills.
