Etymology[edit]

From Proto-Tai *soːŋᴬ, from Middle Chinese (MC ʃˠʌŋ, “two”). Cognate with Tai Dam song, Lao ສອງ (sǭng), ᦉᦸᧂ (ṡoang), Shan သွင် (soang1), Tai Nüa ᥔᥩᥒᥴ (soang1) and Zhuang song.

Numeral[edit]

สอง (sɔ̌ɔng)

  1. (cardinal) 2 (Thai numeral: (2))

Usage notes[edit]

When "two" is at the position of tens, use ยี่ (yîi) as ยี่สิบ (yîi-sìp) instead. There was a suggestion to read "two" as โท (too) while calling or saying a phone number, to distinguish from สาม (sǎam), due to dated low-quality voicing technology.
