Re: Do Thai language speakers place an adjective before or after the noun

We generally say:

หมาสีแดง (pronounced as mha see daeng) or "dog colour red." หมาแดง (dog red) works as well but is more colloquial.

In Thai we generally try to be as descriptive as possible. So MDW is right on about the fact that adjective goes right after nouns. Feel free to PM me if you want to confirm something specific.

Cheers!
