APPENDIX 7: THAI LANGUAGE
Months of the Year

Month names are derived from the Hindu names of the signs of the zodiac.

January mok-ga-rah (kom)
February goom-pah (pan)
March mee-nah (kom)
April may-sah (yon)
May preu-sa-pah (kom)
June mi-too-nah (yon)
July ga-rak-ga-dah (kom)
August sing-hah (kom)
September gan-yah (yon)
October dtoo-lah (kom)
November preu-sa-ji-gah (yon)
December tan-wah (kom)

You will notice each month has a suffix word. There is a pattern here. Months with 31 days end in 'kom', months with 30 days end in 'yon' and February ends in 'pan'. Use of these suffix words is optional.

The Thai word for month is 'deu-an'. To make it clear that you are naming a month you can use this word as a prefix:

deu-an mok-ga-rah
