    So funny to hear how Isaan, Kam Mueang, Paak Tai are so close regarding words / dialects, and how far normal Thai language is from all these dialects. You’re wondering if Thai language should be spoken differently then how it is spoken now. Like closer to all dialects, and more like a generic form from all Thai dialects. Most Isaan people / friends I know all have the opinion tat normal Thai language is an alien language 555.

    I've lived in Phuket for around 2 years now(been visiting as a tourist every year since I was 9 years old), and have had the (mis)fortune of most my friends being from Nakhon Si Thammarat, so while learning central thai the biggest problem in speaking with thai people is not that I don't "get it right", but that my accent is so deep that the first reaction is usually confusion, then some mix of disbelief/laughter. It does even scare some people I've seen, but the southern girls working at 7-11 just can't stop giggling at me ;D

    I'd also like to add that most thai people working around tourism in Phuket are from the north/northeast. Most of the actual locals in touristy areas work the boats. Vast majority live outside the tourist hotspots though, like the fishermen and farmers indigenous to the island.

    As I observe, I think Basa Thai much influenced by Malay, right? I'm Indonesian and think that southern thai accent has less tone than the central one. Also Basa nearly same with Bahasa, which translated into Indonesian is language. So all makes sense hahahaha!

    How very interesting that you’ve shown this video! I already knew Issaan “saep ili” and the ‘Bangkok’ “aroi maak” so now southern “roy jang-hu” is new to me. I’m going to Thailand in a few weeks and I’m staying in Rangsit, so I can use Issan, Central or Southern 555
