Polysyllables

E-mail Print PDF

We saw in chapter monosyllable word composed of two consonants without vowels generates the vowel  (o). A new rule is added to that when this word is composed of several syllables.

When a consonant without vowel precedes a monosyllable the vowel  (a) is automatically associated with it.

When one discovers a new word in Thai it is first necessary to dissect starting with the end in order to determine that they are complete syllables, then apply the rule for polysyllabic.
