How to fake it:



<< Instant Lao

Speak Thai already? Here's a three-step program for instant Lao fluency (or pretense thereof):


The letter "r" must be eliminated.


- At the beginning of a word, "r" turns into "l": roi â?? loi "hundred"


- Within a word, "r" turns into "l": karunaa â?? kalunaa "please"


- In a cluster, "r" disappears completely: prathet â?? pathet "country"


All "ch" turn into "x" (pronounced "s"). chang â?? xang "elephant"


Say baw instead of mai when you want to say "no" or ask a question. >>
