This is another lesson on BUILDING THAI COMPOUND SENTENCES. You will learn to connect clauses using the conjunction – “So that” in these examples:
-Last night, my boyfriend snored so loud that I couldn’t sleep.
-She is so beautiful that I can’t take my eyes off her.
The conjunction “So That” that we are talking about in this lesson is used when you want to describe that something happen to the level that there is a certain result.
The key word that we use to connect a sentence in Thai is จน /jon/ . Below is the pattern:
sentence 1 + จน /jon/ + the result
แฟนของฉันกรนเสียงดังมาก จน ฉันนอนไม่หลับ
/faen chán gron sĭang dang mâak, jon chán nawn mâi làp/
My boyfriend snored was so loud that I couldn’t sleep:
/káo dùem lâo jon mao/
He drank so much that he got really drunk.
Have you ever got so drunk that you fainted?
/kun keoi mao jon mòi sà-dtì mái/
That woman is so beautiful that I can’t take my eyes off her.
/Pûu- yĭng kon nán sŭai mâak jon pŏm lá săai-dtaa jàak káo mâi-dâai/
NOTE: จน /𝒋𝒐𝒏/ also means “poor” and “until
พวกเขาจน /pûak-káo jon/ = They are poor.
พวกเขาทำงานจนเช้า //pûak-káo tam-naan jin cháao/ = They work until morning.
