Thai Cultural Reader. Book II.
Jones, Robert B.; Mendiones, Ruchira C.
This reader is designed to provide advanced students of Thai with a wide range of readings by eminent Thai authors. Writings selected have been excerpted to provide manageable lesson-size units, but have not been otherwise edited. Alternate spellings, and even misspellings, which are not infrequent, have been retained as in the original; but preferred spellings, alternate spellings, and corrections have been indicated in the glossaries. Wherever possible new vocabulary items have been glossed with known Thai equivalents. The 80 lessons have been organized into 11 groups according to general topic or period of history for convenience in reviewing or selection of assignments according to student interest. Authors' names are given under the title of each lesson and the source of the selection is indicated in parentheses at the end of the lesson for those students with access to adequate libraries who may wish to read the complete article or book. The extracts presented in this volume will seldom be complete enough for research purposes. A glossary is appended. The use of this book presupposes the completion of the "Thai Cultural Reader, Book I" (ED 022 151), or a vocabulary equivalent to that book. (Authors/DO)
