Adi rated it it was amazing Sep 01, Maxim Bubnov added it Jun 07, The Best Books of The main reasons which I strongly recommend the Thai Reference Grammar are its thoroughness and wide-ranging topics covered, its focus on the modern, spoken language and its ease of use.
Posted February 22, edited. Posted February 22, This book here might still be useful though when you suddenly want to know how to say “For about 2 years” or “If he had gone” or for a list of common classifiers, so it’s at least not completely useless.

Thai Reference Grammar: The Structure of Spoken Thai by James Higbie
I have a hard copy of Noss’s grammar. Having read quite a few of them and having done a portion of the sentence-level alignment to prepare them for use in the corpusI’ve run into a mix of errors, mistranslations, sentences left out here and there My take on it is that it is useful, but some constructions are not quite natural Thai, and some translations will seem a little contrived – but dont get me wrong though – it IS a good reference work to have on your shelf.
Lists with This Book. Robyn Wolin rated it it was amazing Nov 29, An introduction to Thai sentence structures or word formation is missing completely, it just throws your right into translations of English collocations and sentence types, so it’s not useful for linguists who want to look up a certain feature in Thai but do not speak the language themselves.
For this reason I rarely use it. The authors analysed examples of spoken and colloquial Thai, then came up with their own examples to illustrate how sentences are built.
