Book - The Fundamentals of the Thai Language


Recommended Posts

After reading the Canterbury Tales thread I had a ping and found a book I have long wanted on Amazon in the US. The Fundamentals of the Thai Language, fifth edition by Stuart Campbell. It's my Christmas present to myself, cost AUD $137 in hard cover. Used but in good condition.

I originally bought this book in the Asia Book Store in Bangkok in the early 80's. Stupidly, I loaned it to a mate and never saw it again. The last couple of trips to Thailand I tried to find it again but it's long since out of print.

Thanks for sharing - is it better than more recent grammar books - such as Higbie, Smyth, Iwasaki?

I guess most people do not enjoy grammar books that much but I’m happy to be part of a minority.

I really don't know. I bought that book and a cassette language course from AUA in Bangkok circa 1982. I studied it for about 5 years and then started going to the Philippines. I never returned to Thailand until about 4 years ago.

I found this to be an excellent book and the transliteration was the best I saw in any text book. ave price on Amazon for a good copy is about USD $45.
