Goodreads is the world’s largest site for readers with over 50 million reviews. I wish that book was available in an ebook format but it’s not. May try emailing them, if I can find a contact email. By webfact Started 16 hours ago. My take on it is that it is useful, but some constructions are not quite natural Thai, and the translations will seem a little contrived – but dont get me wrong though – it IS a good reference work to have on your shelf.
Also, explanations are missing, you won’t learn the order of words in a Thai sentence as I had actually hoped forthere are no explanations on the exact situations in what you have to use which different translations, apart from really really brief two-sentence statements that are very vague.
I can get them to display in both Firefox and IE, although downloading the ‘bundled’ dictionary doesn’t seem to complete in either browser.
Each point is illustrated with characteristic sentences written in both Thai script and romanized Thai, with easy-to-read phonetics and tone symbols for improved pronunciation. Unfortunately, in its efforts to cover as much as possible, it is a bit uneven in terms of quality.
The transliteration system is good: The book is divided into chapters based on common grammatical-structural categories, such as questions, conjunctions higbiee tenses, but these grammatial terms are for convenience only and the book is not a Western grammatical analysis, but rather a practical description of the spoken language, both the informal and the formal variety. It should be welcomed by anyone learning the language past beginner level.
So I will not attempt to review the book from beginning to end. You May Also Like. It comes to more than pages, and must represent thousands of hours of work.
