Sinopse

This uncensored, unconventional, non-PC, and humorous guide to the Thai language is above all subjective, and is not meant for serious students. Any words you learn will be accidental, and the result of learning about the author's rocky journey through Thailand over a 3-year period.Of course, it might,accidentally, help, by telling you words that other guide books will often not tell you, and also how to use language as a communication tool and sometimes, as a defensive weapon against exploitation by cunning local scam artists and others.Written by an expat who made many mistakes until he began to understand something about the Thai people and the Thai language!This book is NOT comparable to any other book on the Thai language, because it is accompanied by a personal story, humor, and politically incorrect language. The humor and use of rhyming words to make pronunciation understandable MAY make it more readable (a version with a partial reverse glossary, "Little Miss Noi," is also available)..To summarize, a few possible reasons to have “Little Miss Fon Sat On Her Kon” on your e-reader/tablet/smartphone:--As a conversation starter to make Thais smile, and also to invite help.--Because words that you look up in dictionaries and word books are often easily forgotten. But with a single silly verse such as “Little Miss Fon Sat on Her Kon”, you will learn ten words that you are unlikely to forget: because the verse makes you laugh.--Many words are explained with context and commentary. The nearly 200 words (150 of which are important) are backed by 10,000 words of commentary and background.--An economic aid. When you can speak a few crucial Thai words, prices drop quite fast!--As a learning aid: you pronounce the word as it sounds in the book, usually by using rhyming equivalents in English rather than a pronunciation key, and give it your best shot, asking a Thai person to correct you if you are wrong.Non-pc, for non-judgmental readers with a sense of humor.
