How to write in Thai Script the 11 High-Class Consonants
There are 44 Consonants in the Thai Alphabet. These are broken into 3 different classes of consonants with different tonal rules. The tones are
- high class,
- and low class.
Today I would like to teach you how to write all the High Class Consonants. This is quite easy once you know how and with a bit of practice it will come naturally.
Hints – Always start with the circle part of the Thai Script. We illustrate this below. Have a try:
|1. ข /kɔ̌ɔ kài/|
|2. ฃ /kɔ̌ɔ kùat/|
|3. ฉ /chɔ̌ɔ chìng/|
|4. ฐ /tɔ̌ɔ tǎan/|
|5. ถ /tɔ̌ɔ tǔng/|
|6. ผ /pɔ̌ɔ pʉ̂ng/|
|7. ฝ /fɔ̌ɔ fǎa/|
|8. ศ /sɔ̌ɔ sǎa-laa/|
|9. ษ /sɔ̌ɔ rʉʉ-sǐi/|
|10. ส /sɔ̌ɔ sʉ̌a/|
|11. ห /hɔ̌ɔ hip/|
