Jump to: navigation, search

Tinglish is an English dialect used by Thai people. English is more complicated than the Thai language and English grammar is easily understood.[1] Tinglish is a simple form of English that is usually hard to understand by English speakers. However, many words in Tinglish have a uniquely Thai pronunciation.[1] Time can be a confusing subject in Tinglish. Thais use a 24-hour clock instead of a 12-hour clock.[2]
