The Return of TLT: Request for Thai Dictionaries, Books, Etc.

Wednesday, December 19, 2007 at 11:53 am 2 comments

Just as you all started reading this blog, I let it wither! I’m sorry; I spent the last few weeks on a side project that consumed most of my spare time. That’s complete now so it’s time to get back to work!

I have a request for readers of Thai Language Tricks. I am looking for reference material useful for English-speakers learning Thai, for example, dictionaries, encyclopedias, phrase books, and things like that. Here is what I need:

  • Electronic format: PDF, HTML, plain text, or any other format that I can download
  • Freely distributable: I will re-distribute it, so it should be public domain, creative commons, or otherwise permit copying

I will explain my purpose in a subsequent announcement. For now, I will say that I am seeking the most valuable electronic reference material I can find, and I will make it more accessible. Thai Wikipedia is currently at the top of my list. Any suggestions?

    How about the Foreign Service Institute course? All FSI material is public domain by, since the U.S. government can’t own copyrights. The website has the noble goal of compiling these, along with the accompanying audio tapes (scanned and recorded by users).

    Right now they have the student texts for the first two courses, and the audio for the first course and for an introduction to Thai phonology.
