Informal Thai words

Recommended Posts

I am going to start a thread on informal Thai words because languages schools usually teach the formal words only.

What is the informal word for weed (in the garden)? I know the formal word but that is not used in spoken language.

That sounds like Flintstones and not Thai.

Taa ser

 

Something about not being able to see well. Not a very polite phrase I'm told.

I have just consulted on วัชพืช literally plant life which should be thrown away. To a farmer weeds are หญ้า (grass) apparently. 

Weed killer ยาฆ่าหญ้า 

Seeing Taa sor  maybe it is ตา (eye) could sor be a Thaigrit word eyesore.

This is the formal word that no common Thai people speak.

Do you only comment on posts which do not address yours?

วัชพืช is what I would call an unwanted plant, maybe like under s coconut tree. A real plant that got there by itself.
