About Me ·
At GROSSWEBER we practice what we preach. We offer trainings for modern software technologies like Behavior Driven Development, Clean Code and Git. Our staff is fluent in a variety of languages, including English.
During my trip to Thailand in 2002 (photos buried here) I of course got in touch with the Thai language. Not that I understand Thai besides basic sentences like Sàwàt-dii khráp and Khàwp khun khráp, but the Lonely Planet pages on the Thai language are very interesting.
Thai is a language where the pronounciation of a syllable determines its meaning. In Central Thai there are five tones.
For the example the syllable mai means new, burn, wood, not? or not. The post title mái mài mâi mâi măi essentially forms the sentence New wood doesn't burn, does it? although is consists just of a single word, pronounced differently. Amazing stuff!
