isaan lao
‘Kha Jow’ mean ‘I love you’, but in what language?

Thai or Lao
These two languages are very similar
Well, but actually it only means “I you” so the sentence is not complete.
“I love you” is: “khaawy hak jao” in isaan dialect.
in real Thai language: “khoi hak chao”
in thai letters: ข่อย-ฮัก-เจ้า

Isaan Lao

Please see this post of just three days ago: Lao Isaan.

Additionally, Siamsmile offers some great perspective on the “Isaan Dialect.”

You might also enjoy the obvious bias that is evident in the opinion offered in this short essay at Lao Babes.

Lastly, I would just like to single this out.  Amazon.com has an MP3 download called Learning Isaan (Lao) that stretches my credulity sufficiently for me to offer this commentary:

Learning Isaan (Lao)

Granted, it is only 89¢, so hardly much of a loss. But how can an audio download of some Isaan hits give anyone a grasp of the language? At least in watching many karaoke-style videos on YouTube, a viewer can see the actual words coursing across the screen, even if their English equivalent is unknown. Without a written text to refer to as the singing in the MP3 download progresses along, I cannot imagine anyone profiting even remotely with this product as a language learning aid.

All I see it as is a simple gimmick to sell a music collection of Isaan Morlam and Lukthung hits. So why not merely offer it as that?

Anyway, as I did in my previous recent post on this topic referred to above, here are some further related references to the Isaan Region that you might enjoy having a look at — all are being added in a May 21 (2012) post edit:

Thai people don’t always agree on everything, but one area that pervades all of Thailand is a love for the spicy, salty, sour and sweet flavours of Isaan-style salads.

Isaan has a history of being dominated and oppressed by various regimes over the last 800 years – which paints a painful past for the ethnolinguistic groups that occupy the region (Isaan, Lao and Khmer). We are excited

What language do thai people speek besides thai?

There are many other languages but spoken only by small numbers of people. The couple of major languages are Yawee in the south and something close to Lao in the northeast, often just referred to as Isaan language.

About Garnet Barcelo

I am a Canadian retiree, married to an Isaan (Thailand) lady whom I met in Udon Thani City in January 2003. We married in late May 2005. And she has been with me here in Canada since May 2006. Her two sons joined us in September 2008. Ever since that first visit to Thailand in 2003, my dream has been to somehow spend most of my retired life over there with her, but the financial reality of my retired life is not making that possible. It will take a miracle to get this dream to come true.
