    Anyone know what the Issan Lao word is for fun and any slang terms for fun? Can't ask mrs as she is not Lao

    Only time I have heard the word sing used is in the phase morlam sing. Simply means to sing morlam music.

    No Norton, it is from the English 'racing' and was used to describe the fast pace of lam cing. If you want to check see Molam cing Issan bodies and voices in a modernised performing art form ISBN 07490286-3-5 from Sunee University Korat. The only place I have seen sing used (apart from Terry Millers work) is in the 2000 fm 95 year book, where they claim sing is Lao for fun, not right as I thought.

    I only hear Lao everyday and often don't get into the intricacies or derivitives so occasionally form definition based on observation. I shall refrain from posting my incorrect assumptions in the future.
    Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.
