Wiktionary:Requested entries (Thai)
for basic Thai words that need entries
Have an entry request? Add it to the list. - But please:
- Think twice before adding long lists of words as they may be ignored.
- If possible provide context, usage, field of relevance, etc.
Please remove entries from this list once they have been written (i.e. the link is “live”, shown in blue, and has a section for the correct language)
There are a few things you can do to help:
- Add glosses or brief definitions.
- Add the part of speech, preferably using a standardized template.
- If you know what a word means, consider creating the entry yourself instead of using this request page.
- For words which are listed here only in their romanized form, please add the correct form in Thai script.
- Don’t delete words just because you don’t know them — it may be that they are used only in certain contexts or are archaic or obsolete.
- Don’t simply replace words with what you believe is the correct form. The form here may be rare or regional. Instead add the standard form and comment that the requested form seems to be an error in your experience.
- กระเพา - basil (I think this is misspelled: กระเพา (grà pao) = pretty freckles. Instead, โหระพา (hŏh rá paa) = Thai basil, Ocimum basilicum. กะเพรา (gà prao) = holy basil, Ocimum tenuiflorum, Ocimum sanctum. —Stephen (Talk) 00:15, 28 October 2015 (UTC))
- งูดินหางยาว - a type of snake
- จุม (joom is unusual word, I think it is a loan. I don’t believe it exists as a separate word.) - it still would be great to trace and give the etymology in the ปี่จุม entry
- น้ำจิ้ม - dipping sauce
- เบิ้ง -- From Korat dialect. It's not actually standard Thai language เบิ่ง or เบิ้ม. --Octahedron80 (talk) 05:48, 25 June 2014 (UTC)
- โบก - to wave?
- แร่ด (rɛ̂t, “pretentious; slutty”) (I think the correct spelling is แรด. —Stephen (Talk) 21:49, 24 May 2015 (UTC))
- สันต์ (săn) (don’t know of any separate meaning for this. It ends in a silent "d", so maybe it’s a borrowing from Pali)
- สะโพน - supposedly an old form of ตะโพน, said to derive from the name of a drum formerly used in India
