A Short History About Thai Script

history

King Ramkhamhaeng Wasn’t only a valiant
And wise ruler, but he cares alot about the welfare
of his people.

The Thai script (writing ) ราชภัฏ  was created by King Ramkhamhaeng,
The next son of King Si Intharathit of Sukhothai who had
freed Thailand from the Khmer. King Ramkhamhaeng was also the most prosperous monarch ever
to rule out the Sukhothai kingdom.

In order to be truly independent from the ramifications of the Mon and the Khmer,
He made”The Sukhothai Script” at 1283 A.D and it was
the earliest Thai writing that was pure Thai.

The Sukhothai Script was really originated from the ancient
Brahmi script of South India called “Grantha”.

Back in 1357, King Li Thai (grandson of King Ramkhamhaeng),
Created a brand new script called”King Li Thai script”. In 1680,
the King Narai script was first introduced and it has now become
the national Thai script.

Thai consonant class is necessary for pronunciation…

The modern Thai script now uses an alphabet of 44 consonants, 3 2 vowels
And four tone marks. The consonants are then split into 3 categories, high, moderate
and also low. Please observe that the classes are completely random though. A low consonant may possibly sound such as a high tone and also
the contrary can be correct.

Learning Thai isn’t so difficult at all when you have a person to practise with. If you would like to quicken the educational process, be sure to find a Thai friend who’s willing to speak Thai with youpersonally.
