Thai Negation.
Alam, Samsul
A study analyzed the structure of negative sentences in the Thai language, based on data gathered from two native speakers. It is shown that the Thai negative marker generally occurs between the noun phrase (subject) and the verb phrase in simple active sentences and in passive sentences. Negation of noun phrases is also allowed in Thai, with a marker. The way in which negation works in a tag is also demonstrated. Double and triple negations are not allowed in Thai, nor is a negative marker allowed at the end of a sentence. However, a negation marker can be used at the beginning of a sentence. (MSE)
