    What is the classifier for house for example ” Pom mee horng neung horng ” it is correct krup.

    • Mod 16/05/2013 at 10:01 #

      Sawatdee ka,
      House in Thai is บ้าน baan (falling tone), the classifier for house is หลัง lang (rising tone)

      I have two houses ผมมีบ้านสองหลัง pom mii baan sawng lang.

      ห้อง horng means ‘room’ na ka : )
