Thai-English English-Thai Dictionary for Non-Thai Speakers, Revised Edition
by Benjawan Poomsan Becker
This practical dictionary is designed to help English speakers communicate
in Thai. It is equally useful for those who can read the Thai alphabet and those
who can't. Most Thai-English dictionaries either use Thai script exclusively for
the Thai entries (making them difficult for westerners to use) or use only phonetic
transliteration (making it impossible to look up a word in Thai script). This
dictionary solves these problems by dividing the entries into three sections:
Section One [English-Phonetic-Thai], Section Two [Phonetic-Thai-English] and Section
Three [Thai-Phonetic-English]. The transliteration system is the same as that
used in Paiboon Publishing's other books. You will find most of the vocabulary
you are likely to need in everyday life, including basic medical, cultural, political
and scientific terms.
Here are some of the features:
- Consistent and accurate phonetic transcription of Thai sounds for those unable
to read the Thai alphabet
- A comprehensive guide to pronunciation
- Thai script for those who read Thai
- All entries organized in three easy to use sections
- Thai alphabet guide showing different styles of Thai script to help you read
