See attached pic. Would really appreciate if someone could advise which way the tones go.

 

Thanks in advance

Spelt like that both words are mid tone,

with transcription, it may look similar, but if you heard the two pronounced, I think you'd see they're definitely different. the island is เกาะล้าน gaw(L) laan (H).

 

incidentally, what is it from? Not sure of the meaning at all??

To a Thai they sound totally different. The island would be low tone and then high tone.

So koh laen for my pic and koh laan for the island (with appropriate tones)?

 

It's the name of a place up in buntharik in Ubon. I went to stay with the family up there and after spending about a day scouring google earth I'm pretty sure it was very very close to where I was staying.

 

My TG told me "buntharik" at the time but I naively assumed it was the name of a town, not like a whole county!

 

As she never mentioned Koh Laen I suspect she'll be quite surprised when I mention it next trip.

They are both totally different sounds. The Koh as in island is pronounced low, very short and with the initial consenant sounding half way between an English 'g' and a 'k'. The Khoo as in your initial example is mid tone, aspirated (you could blow a candle out saying it) and long.

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
      4th April - Toy Box bar Soi 6
      11th April - Repent Soi 6
      18th April - where angels play Soi 6
      25th April -  (next bar we have open)

      2nd May - (next bar we have open)
      9th May - Cooters bar soi 6 
      16th May - Hot shots bar Soi 6
      23rd May - (next bar we have open)
