Here's a new one for me "อากาศ" - "air pocket" or turbulence. From today's newspaper  คม-ชัด-ลึก :

"สายการบินรัสเซีย Aeroflot ระบุว่า มีผู้โดยสารหลายรายที่ได้รับบาดเจ็บจากเหตุการณ์ตกหลุมอากาศอย่างรุนแรง ก่อนถึงกรุงเทพราว 40 นาที ส่วนใหญ่ไม่คาดเข็มขัดนิรภัย"

 

The Russian airline "Aeroflot" announced today that most of the passengers who were injured as a result of the violent air pocket [or turbulence] encountered 40 minutes before reaching Bangkok were not wearing seat belts.

i looked closer into the 2 words.

หลุม  = (lum)  Cavity, ditch, pothole, hollow

อากาศ  = (agat)  weather , sky, gas, air (outside) climate

กะ-เทย

 

not a trace of R in ga-teuy

not in the spelling or the sound

 

many postings from you being plain confusing , off the chart

 

 

 

Excuse my interjecting as I have not read the entire thread.... but as to the Kgai sound, I have always transliterated it as Kg - as it is neither a full K or G to my ear but sort of a hard G but I think of it as one sound that combines the two... KGAI = chicken..

ไก่

 

Gai.

 

Pronouncements depending on surrounding vowels..

 

Recommended "learning Thai from a white guy"

 

He has good explanations / rules for pronunciation, also very detailed descriptions on how to achieve correct sound.
