Thailand Proverbs, Quotes, and Sayings

Thailand

Thai Language

Thai is the national language of Thailand and one of over 60 languages of Thailand. Over half of the Thai vocabulary is derived from Pali, Sanskrit, Mon, and Old Khmer.

Thai is a tonal and analytic language, similar to Chinese and Vietnamese.

Thai is written in the Thai script, written from left to right. It is derived from the Khmer script. The language and its script are closely related to the Lao language and script. 

The Thais adopted and modified the Khmer script to create their own writing system.

The Portuguese were the first Western nation to arrive in what is modern-day Thailand in the 16th century. Their influence in trade and weaponry allowed them to establish a community just outside the capital.

Thus, Portuguese words involving trade and the Christian religion were introduced and used by the locals.
