สอย [ สอย ]sŏi
This is an approximate indication of how common a word is in Thai.
[ Verb ]
- [to] pick fruit (from a tree by using a ไม้สอย)
Sounds similar to...
- [to] slice ; mince ; divide
- soi (A "soi" is a side-street off a ถนน (main road). They're typically numbered in odd numbers on one side of the road and even on the other, and may also have a name in addition to a number. Some sois become so large and busy that they're practically main roads in themselves, and so can be referred to either as ซอย or ถนน. An alley or lane that is too small to be a ซอย is called a ตรอก.)
- [to] brush back ; swing up
Did You Know ?krap and ka in Thai
The polite particles ครับ krap and ค่ะ/คะ ka are amongst the most commonly used words in the Thai language, but they are virtually impossible to directly translate in English. krap is used by male speakers, ka by female speakers, and they are added to the end of a sentence to make it more polite and show respect to the listener. krap and ka are most commonly used when talking to people you've just met , when talking to people of high status or pretty much anytime you want to be polite. If talking to someone you've just met who you expect to talk to for only a few sentences at most - e.g. waiters, shop staff, taxi drivers, receptionists - you should use a polite particle after pretty much every sentence (and they will likely do the same).
