Meaning of here/hear?

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

 

 During my last trip my LT told me to not use the word 'Here' when talking to Thais? I tried to ask her what it meant in Thai? but she either didn't know the English or she wasn't saying.

 So what the hell does here/hear mean in Thai please???

"here" said with a Thai accent does sound like the Thai curse word but เหี้ย is said with a falling tone which a foreigner isn't likely to use when speaking English. Nothing to worry about.

Hear = Tii nii. Pronounced Tii= As in a cup of TEA, Nii as in knee to the groin.

เหี้ย  hiia isn't really a bitch, it's just in insult to a despicable or low class person. preceding it with ไอ้ ai = damn or emphasizing a bad word, ai hiia is similar to calling a guy a fucking cunt, but the term is also used as an expletive of bad surprise.  Stub you toe on a table? Almost hit by a lorry? Someone scares the shit out of you? ไอ้เหี้ย ai hiaa is a good phrase to use, when said sounds more like ay ya. 

 

เย็ด yet is also another word to try to avoid.  yet = fuck.  I was in the midst of sending a work email and one of my friends asked me if I had already eaten in thai(gin laaeo reu yang), I answered "not yet" in english without thinking because I was writing english and the whole group erupted with laughter because all they heard was "no fuck!"

not to be pedantic, but นี่ nee is technically this, ที่ thee is a location of something.  Here is indeed thee nee(location this), but understanding the words helps to expand your diction to thee nan(location there), yu thee nai?(located at which location?).  Hear can be expressed by to listen = ฟัง fang, or to enter the ear = เข้าหู khao huu, though be careful with hear because tone really matters.

    • Hi Guys

      As many of you know we have been running now for 16 years and apart from one brief time when we were allowed PayPal, so could use the inbuilt donation function, we have tried to avoid asking for donations. We have certainly avoided being in anyones face about it.

      Sadly that has now changed.

      The forum currently costs around $900 a month to operate. That includes Bangkok and Philippines but PA makes up the vast majority of it. This fee covers forum hosting, image hosting, notification emails and support.

      Before anyone says "its expensive" please be aware we have tried for years to find better for cheaper - it just doesn't exist for the size we are. Also a lot of hosts wont Touch us anyway. Our current host is actually cheaper than the previous one but that brings its own problems.

      Moving on -

      I would like to stress there is NO obligation whatsoever. Also, whatever happens the forum is going no-where!

      Donators can CHOOSE to have their donation listed (probably in this thread or we can make a new one) or to remain anonymous. Likewise they can CHOOSE whether the amount is published or not.

      There is no minimum, or maximum for that matter. ANY donation will be very gratefully received. We are very aware that many members are also having it tough these days.

      We are still unable to promote/post PayPal addresses etc on the forum so would ask that anyone who would like to make a donation to PM me, or ask me here to PM you and we will sort out details via that PM.
