Thai has many more personal pronouns than English; age, social status, gender, the relationship between the speakers, the formality of the situation and individual personality all play a part in helping a Thai to decide the most appropriate way to refer to him/herself and address and refer to others in any situation.
Kin terms such as dad, aunt, child status/occupation such as teacher, doctor and personal names or nicknames are also commonly used as personal pronouns.
As a starting point for learners, the personal pronoun system can be simplified to the following;
I (male speaker) = Pǒm ผม
I (female speaker) = Chán ฉัน
You = Kun คุณ
He, She = Káo เขา
We = Pûak-Rao, Rao พวกเรา
They = Pûak- Káo พวกเขา
It = Man มัน
Pronouns have a single form for subject and objects:
pǒm chôrp káo
= I like her/him
káo chôrp pǒm
= She/He likes me.
I prefer to call myself by my nickname, Mod when I speak to everyone except freinds.
