[Lesson 1] 10. Suay

Please listen to the Thai to learn how to pronounce the word.


(Click on the word above and you can hear it in Thai.)

Meaning = Beautiful

How to use.
The use of this word is the same as it is everywhere in the world,

If you see a beautiful woman,


Nobody is angry when they are called "beautiful".

But Japanese must not say "Kirei" ("meaning = beautiful" in Japanese) to Thai women,
because in Thai,

Keeree = ugly, unattractive

There is very little difference between the pronunciation of "Kirei" in Japanese and "Keeree" in Thai,
but the meaning is inverted.
