Thai Numbers - Exceptions - Am I right?

Recommended Posts

I have different spelling of thai numbers, cause I'm not writing numbers in english, but my language.

 

###################### 1 ######################

 

In tens is special only twenty:

 

10 - sip (normal)

20 - yee sip (exception)

30 - saam sip (normal)

40 - sii sip

...

...

...

...

 

 

 

###################### 2 ######################

 

100 - nung raawy OR raawy?

 

###################### 3 ######################

 

When number ends 1 it's not nung, but et.

 

11 - sip et

31 - saam sip et

 

But in hundreds it's normal

 

101 - raawy nung

 

But what about 131?

 

131 - raawy saam sip nung OR raawy saam sip et

 

 

###################### 4 ######################

 

Is there any other exception I didn't mention?

101 - raawy nung - nung roy nung

 

But what about 131? - nung roy saam sip et

 

 

 

 

1000 = PUN

 

 

Its the same as English ( hindi numbers ...i forget)

 

big numbers first and work you way down

 

 

 

now try the alphabet.....good luck!.

'raawy'

 

ugh...

I'm happy I can speak German, because all Thai sounds have a German equivalent, very handy for phonetics!

 

12 500 - soong sip pun haa roy (not sure about twelve thousand?)

nah... 10.000 has a different name: meun

 

so this would be (in my German spelling): (nüng) mün song pan haa roi

101 - roi nung, nung roi nung & roi-et are all correct, so you can choose which one you like

 

2 more words:

100.000 -saen

1.000.000 -laan

 

Edit:

oh, and 0 - soon.

Always useful when reading phone- or roomnumbers out loud

Thanks for pointing that out. Thought only roi-et was correct as i actually got corrected by a TG when in the beginning i said roi-nung and she told me that it was roi-et. Apparantly both terms can be used.

Everyone has the right to my opinion

That's probably because roi-nung can mean both 100 and 101, depending on the tone of "nung" (mid-tone = 100, low-tone = 101).

So if you're a bit shaky with your tones and you want to avoid confusion, it's safer to use roi-et.

A lot of Thais do the same, and it's also the name of the Isaan city Roi Et.

Thx again - never heard a thai saying roi nung meaning 100, only heard them saying nung roi or simply roi (roi baht) (song roi sam roi etc. but roi if only one). I know about the district of Roi Et - actually my former wife came from that district,, so i am aware of the meaning of roi et. I do beleive that the story is that the city had 101 towers (actually it only had 11, but calling the city sib et was not enough roi et was more appropiate 555)

Ask your girl of the day to take you to a thai style funfair, you know the kind with a music stage, some market, food and a number of gambling games that are often on various places of the city. Then go play bingo with her. She will love it and that is how i learned counting as 1 of the first things. Still hardly speak any thai, but have no problems with numbers anymore.
