The Land of Smiles
I'm off to Thailand for a short holiday. Whilst doing some research I came across the phenomenon of nicknames. More here. Here's a blog with a post about girls [slightly risque link] nicknames. I particularly liked this response after some off-colour posts: "Sorry Nick but your question is far too sensible. You are supposed to include at least one insult with every post. I think I can answer it anyway. I believe Thon-than means something that lasts a long time....enduring".
This is a Thai language resource. Link…
