Usefull commonly used slang and misspelling on purpose

Recommended Posts

Stuff that may come in handy in chats. Mostly used by youth, and the newer generation.

 

confusing words:

เค้า Versatile word for either; Me, You, He/She. Still confuses me from time to time.

เรา Actually is ment to mean us (พวกเรา this will always mean us) but is sometimes used for "me".

เธอ Actually means she (female) but is used for both genders as "you".

เขา Actually means he (male) but also used for bother genders as "He/She".

 

อี(...) Mostly used for insulting/swearing, but can used as a funny word between intimate friends. ex; อีอ้วน damn fatty! อีชะนี damn gibbon! (used to insult woman by other woman, typically caused by jealousy) This is always insulting if used with strangers or unintimate relations.

ไอ้(...) Same as above but usually of a less stronger meaning. Can be more often used as funny word between intimate friends or lovers. Ex; ไอ้อ้วน damn fatty! (typically used as a nickname for a male lover by a female) Becarefull this word can become very powerfull if combined with some other words. Ex; ไอ้บ้า Damn lunatic! This is in no situation funny, and will always be an insult.

บัก(...) Same as the words above but coming from Isaan language, but is used everywhere these days. depending on combination can either be funny or insulting. Not 100% sure but i think this word does not mean "damn". Someone please correct me on this one.

กวน Annoying, disturbing, harrasing, minding in someone elses business too much.

กวนตีน Same as the above, but with a very strong meaning almost very insulting. Never polite.

เยส Can be both "Yes" from english, or "having sexual intercourse" in a very rude way of saying it. Usually the latter.

เย/เย้ส/เย้จ/เยิด Same as above but always means the latter one. Common variant of เย็ด.

หี/หอย/จิม/จิมิ Slang for "vagina" with the first 2 being very rude.

 

 

ฝรรดี Mistyping on purpose for "Good night", "Sweet dreams". If you look at the thai keyboard layout on smartphones u will understand why.

คร๊าบ/คร๊าฟ/คับ/ครัช Various commonly used variations for "Krab/ครับ".

จ้า Yes, OK, Ka. Used by females. Can be used to express being annoyed if pronounced with a very long Jaaah! sound. Like OK i get it, now move on!

เย้/เยี่ยม Yeaaaah! (expression for excitement)

เช็ค Check, inspect, commonly used came from english

แชร์ Share, like in share the bill, or share food. Also from english.

เค Ok! K!

เออ/เออๆ Rude way of expressing annoyance.

เบลอ (Blur) from english, usually to say that someone is delusional and acting crazy. Ex; You suspect your GF is being too intimate with another guy. อย่าเบลอ! Dont be delusional, dont be crazy.

Haha, you dont need to get those mixxed up xD You dont say good teeth before sleep, and the dentist wont say good night to you 😛 But i understand, i, myself; i suck at pronounciation and listening. But im fairly good with Thai script. To be honest i dont hear any differences between those 2 words.

You mean: "It's a fact, she is Thai, so she's cheating, of course"?

I dont understand what you mean. It can be used both ways for male and female. If one person is getting suspicious of his/hers partner. That person will say things like; "What is this about? Why do you spend so much time with ....? Do you guys have something together? " in which the other can respond: อย่าเบลอ! Yha-Blur! (Dont be blurred/delusional/ dont be silly, of course not!) Its a response on somebody who is suspicious on you. Its not confirming a fact.

อี for females ไอ้ for males. 

Easy for me to remember because one of the first words I learnt was อีดอก - tart, prostitute, hooker.  A neighbour called George is referred to as ไอ้ย๊อด he is very queeny.  But! people now try to blur this distinction, I feel that อี ไอ้ both show disapproval.

understood. Everything in context though, seeing these words in isolation is like trying to learn vocabulary, very difficult. In the context of departing from someone who was going home to sleep, it is difficult to see how they would think that fan dee dee meant good teeth! 

The next comment is for nakluapattaya which somehow interrupted my flow. 

 

When kids say อีฟาย they probably do not know the distinction between อี and ไอ้ also they probably do not realise that it comes from ควาย which is more easily understood to mean dumb. 

This is the problem, in what age should we place ourselves? I am firmly in the old codgers camp and when I hear stuff like this I don’t copy it. 

 

edit. Old codger, ในวัยชารา or มีอายุสูง or อรวุโส

ฟาย and ควาย as far as i know are unrelated. Observed as used often in the 18-28 age range.

I see how it is annoying for older people, i spoke to some older Thai people as well who expressed being deeply annoyed by the youth "raping" "messing up" the Thai language.

They are both used for both male, female, and objects.

 

New one:

กาก Sucks/Bad. As in; "He sucks at playing football". Pretty strong and offensive.

สัส Same as สัตว์ but always used to curse or insult. Never to be used to refer to actual animals. "ไอ้สัส/อีสัส".

หรั่ง Slang for ฝรั่ง but never used for the fruit.

สีดา Isaan word for ฝรั่ง but sometimes used as jokingly refering to foreigners "บักสีดา". Used nationwide.

ปัง Used as a short word for bread, but can be used as alternative for สวย, mostly for objects like clothing.
