L8(j) - 'reu bplao' - Or Not?
'reu bplao' - this question form translates as 'or not?' This may not be a common question form in English but it is a common way to ask a question in Thai. It always comes at the end of the sentence.
A little more vocabulary:
|bplao||no / not|
Let's look at an example:
mah poo-get reu bplao ? - are you coming to Phuket or not?
In English, this sounds rather harsh or impatient. In Thai, it is a normal question form and does not have any overtones of impatience.
The standard responses to this question are:
mah krup - coming
bplao krup - no
