Learn Most Thai Popular Words

At the moment no Thai is not talking about “บุพเพสันนิวาส Buppesannivas”. It is the most popular Thai drama series of all time! This TV series is based on the history that took place in year 1682 which was in the era of the King Narai of Ayutthaya Kingdom (year 1656 to 1688). Thai language that is spoken in that era is different from Thai language that is spoken nowadays.

If you would like to be in the trend you should try using these phrases with your Thai friends.

  1. “บุพเพสันนิวาส /bùp-pee-săn-ní-wâat/” = Love destiny

Ex. บุพเพสันนิวาสพาเรามาเจอกัน

/bùp-pee-săn-ní-wâat paa rao maa jer gan/

Love destiny brought us together.

  1. “ออเจ้า /aw-jâo/” ***The most popular word right now!”***

This word means “you”, it is used to address a younger person. I believe this word is used by almost young Thai females when they call their friends. And the word “คุณพี่ /kun pîi/ is used to address an older man who is in the same generation”

Ex. ออเจ้าชื่ออะไร /aw-jâo chûe à-rai?/ = What is your name?

ข้าชอบออเจ้า /kâa châwp aa-jâo/ = I like you.

  1. “ไปเวจ /bpai wét/” = go to the toilet

“เวจ /wét/” is an ancient toilet (privy) where you have to be in a squad position. Instead of saying the normal Thai phrase ไปอึ /bpai ùe/ or ไปทำธุระหนัก /bpai tam tú-rá-nàk/ or ไปเข้าห้องน้ำ/bpai kâo hâwng-náam/ you could try “ไปเวจ /bpai wét/” and wait to see your Thai friends’ reaction.

Watch the scene where the main charactor talking about going to the Wet.


4. โล้สำเภา /lóe-săm-pao/ = to sleep with someone
