From Ancient Thai To Modern Dialects 850 Baht

From Ancient Thai To Modern Dialects

By J. Marvin Brown

The standard comparative studies usually stop with phoneme correspondence lists, which show neither the phonological system of the languages nor the systematic nature of the changes. In this book, "transformation charts" of modern phonemes in the ancient arrangement reveals both at a glance. A comparison of a dialects transformation chart with a chart of ancient Thai shows the systematic changes, while the dialect's phonological chart insures he correct interpretation of the phonemic symbols.

These charts, together with a map and a family tree (on fold-out sheets for simultaneous inspection), give a complete view of the phonological history of 60 Thai dialects. For the Thai linguist: A unique wealth of information. For the historical linguist: An ingenious methodology. For the phonologist: A powerful phonological theory. And for the traveler in Thailand: A guide for converting central Thai words into the local pronunciation of nearly every part of the Kingdom. And Other Writings on Historical Thai Linguistics And now, in this reprint, five more of Dr. Brown's writings on historical Thai linguistics have been added to help the reader understand the main book. Also, a short article on Dr. Brown's 'Control Phonology' appears here for the first time. This is the key to understanding all of Dr. Brown's work. It was too far ahead of its time to be published when it was written in 1965. The gap has now narrowed.
