Akson Kao-li (อักษรเกาหลี)
Akson Kao-li is a way to write Korean with the Thai script invented by Sakana Oji. The name means "Korean script" in Thai.
- Most of the consonant and vowel arrangements are based on the ISO 11940 transliteration.
- Ieung and Hieut have second forms; Ieung has a silent initial form (อ) and its final form is a -ng sound (ง), while Hieut has a final form (ษ) just to make the script more consistent.
- Unlike in the Thai language, this adapted script uses spaces between words to make it more easier to understand.
- If a "y" diphthong is preceded by silent Ieung, Yo Ying (ญ) is used for the "y" sound. Otherwise, Yo Yak (ย) is used.
- If a "w" diphthong is preceded by silent Ieung, Ho Nok-huk (ฮ) is used for the "w" sound. Otherwise, Wo Waen (ว) is used.
