Greetings in Thai
Thai people don't normally speak to people who they haven't been introduced to.
is only one way of saying hello. Quite often this is abbreviated to ËÇÑ´´Õ
[Poo] sawasdee ka
[Aom] 'waddee ka
Obviously, this is more informal. An alternative informal greeting is
bhen yang rai bang
* Did you think we would transliterate the mahanagat
in yang as a u ?
Many books transliterate to a short u, which we think is much more confusing than a short a.
bhen yang ngai bang *
or sometimes abbreviated to
bhen ngai bang
or even as short as
An even more informal version is
bhen ngai mang
They all mean How is it going ?
