Reading Thai. A Programmed Approach.
Dellinger, David W.
This programed text for learning to read Thai was originally designed for students having a grounding in Thai phonology and some facility with the language, but it has been made useful for students without this background by the inclusion of a summary of Thai phonology and the use of romanization. The text is organized according to the three classes of Thai consonants. The letters within each class share certain writing rules, so that the rules and the individual letters are learned at the same time. A chapter summary and an alphabetical listing of the letters in Appendix 1 are provided for students who prefer to concentrate on individual letters or memorization. The material is practiced by means of short groups of reading drills. A quiz is provided at the end of each of the seven chapters. Appendix 2 provides an outline of the tone rules, while Appendix 3 gives information about using a Thai dictionary. (CLK)
