The thai word for shy is `ai` but is it pronounced as in `eye` or as in `hey`.

Ai, as in shy, or eye, but with a more Ar sound.

Phom ki ai = I am shy.

Pronounce ki flat, not high rising or you will be telling her you're a shy sh*t.

The word is spelled Or Ang, Sara Ar, Yor Yak.

So "(o)ary"

Can also be used shy - (nýjam). Pronunciation is a strong pronouncing the letter "N" at the beginning of words.

Don't understand what you mean by Ar sound.

I think that maybe you mean if you say "Are you" without pronouncing the "r" and the "oo"

"eye" is close enough though.

ai  means to be shy or embarassed

Kee ai describes a person who tends to be shy

 

Kee has a falling tone and is exactly the same as the Thai word for shit

Chasing girls can be expensive

But it's more expensive if you catch one
