    Deh. Is a Lao/Isan ending. Doesn`t mean much.
    "See" is lao too, well, if it is intended to mean like this.

    Now, how the run-o-the-mill foreigner who might know some Thai or even some Isaan words (if that's where their significant thai other happens to be from) would know the spelling in English "deh" is the "karaoke" version of เด้อ is totally beyond me!!

    Heck even the poster known as "brisie" was closer with their karaoke version of แซ่บอิหลีหลายเด้อ, or at least I understood it when I read it on the first go round.

    You might notice that Isaan Thai while borrowing heavily from Lao influenced words is spelled in Thai characters, NOT Lao ones, and that the tones are skewed from how the real Lao words are pronounced.

    Isaanites and Laotians can't always understand one another when talking. I've seen born, bred, rice fed Isaan Thais totally "lock up" when confronted with "real honest to goodness Lao".

    I realize this thread is about "Thai insults" but it would appear that fruit is beyond the reach of most readers here....

    How about we start with some simple and easy words in ภาษาอีสาน seeing as it seems to be the preferred language of choice; even though I personally feel a person would get WAY more mileage outta speaking "Central Thai" (the government approved version of the language)..

    Here's a link to some Isaan words to get you started;

    Not a swear word but I've referred to toilet paper as "gradaht doot" to Thais. Some of them crack up. Some are horrified.

    An evil spirit or an annoying twat? Probably the latter.

    https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/เปรต

    เปรต

    1. (Buddhism, Hinduism) preta, a type of supernatural creature born to be punished or undergo great suffering as a result of sinful deeds committed in previous lives.

    2. preta, a type of ghost in Thai folklore, believed to have a very tall and thin body, the mouth as small as the hole of a needle, the hands as large as palm leaves, and to consume blood and pus as food, as well as to scream at night.

    3. (slang, sometimes vulgar) very annoying or disturbing person, just like a preta that keeps bothering someone to beg for food or for the dedication of merit to it, or that keeps screaming at night.
