In the second of our ongoing Thai language series, we continue talking to ‘Thai Language Jedi’ Rikker Dockum about the complexities of the Thai language. In this episode, we jump onto the much-discussed tone system of Thai, and why foreigners have such a hard time wrapping their head around it while our Thai friends are wondering what the big deal is. Greg and Tony also each share a story or two about how the tones and Romanization aspect of Thai have gotten them into hot water a few times.
In addition, Tony talks about his iPhone problems and why he can’t wait to toss his old model when the iPhone 4 makes it to Thailand.
PS – Due to weird scheduling issues, this episode was recorded before we confirmed the BANGKOK PODCAST LAUNCH PARTY, which wasn’t mentioned. Please join us on July 17, 2010 to meet us, some of the other listeners, and join in general merriment.
