THAI LANGUAGE LESSONS
L8(d) - 'krai' - Who?
'krai' - is the Thai word for 'who'. Unlike most Thai question words, this one is usually placed at the start of a question.
(note it is a hard 'g', not like the drink)
Let's look at some of examples:
krai tam ? - who did it?
krai gin som-tam ? - who is eating papaya salad?
krai yoo tee bahn ? - who is in the house?
Again we have the slightly confusing change of usage when this word is not used as a question. Then it can become 'nobody' or 'anybody'.
'mai mee krai' - Nobody or don't have anybody. Literally 'don't have who.'
'mai ao krai bpai' - I don't want anybody to go.
