  1. A 'pretty' (noun) is a Thai woman who makes her living from promotional work eg hired by the motor shows in BKK to stand provocatively next to the cars etc. 'Attractive' and 'a beauty' are just descriptions which could apply to anyone eg a nurse working in a hospital could be described as attractive or a beauty, but she wouldn't be a 'pretty', as they often describe them in the Thai press, since it's not her job.

These seemed like definitions rather than synonyms or equivalents, but when I asked a Thai if there was a noun for optimist or pessimist they said no, that's how a Thai would say it.
