This practical Thai English, English Thai dictionary is designed to help English speakers communicate in Thai, whether or not you can read the Thai alphabet. All Thai words are listed in both Thai script and an easy-to-learn, English-like pronunciation system that fully expresses the Thai sound, including the tones and everything else you need to speak and understand Thai words correctly. It's a perfect fit with our other books, such as Thai for Beginners.
Unlike traditional dictionaries, there are three sections: you can look up an English word in the English section, look up a Thai word you read using the Thai Script section, or look up a Thai word you hear by its sound in the unique Thai Sound section.
Whether you are visiting Thailand for a short while or living there permanently, you will find most of the vocabulary used in everyday life, including basic medical, cultural, political and scientific terms.
Completely updated and expanded with more than 28,000 entries and 36,000 definitions, as well as a new, large font size that is easy on the eyes, this next-generation Paiboon dictionary now lists over 15,000 classifiers along with nouns. There is an extensive intro to speaking and writing Thai, with a handy font chart to help you read signs and newspaper headlines.
It's the one dictionary you can really use! And it comes in a portable size that is easy to carry around Thailand. The full version of this dictionary with over 150,000 entries is now available for download for iOS and Android.
