Not really, they're just saying that you can't accurately render the pronunciation of Thai word(s) using the English alphabet. For that matter, the same is true for almost any foreign language. Even those that use the same alphabet as English often have slightly different pronunciations of those letters.brokendown wrote:thanks for the replies.looks like everyone agrees to disagree.
Perhaps that is what the poster was trying to communicate, and if they were addressing some of the Thai vowels that don't exist in English then I can understand that point. However, "Hua Hin" is a very simple Thai name to pronounce, for those that have learned to read and pronounce the Thai language. Those folks that persist in trying to pronounce "Hua" with any kind of a "w" sound really should take some Thai language classes if they want to correct their pronounciation bad habit. In addition to not having a "w" sound, both words are pronounced with a rising tone.
