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

Languages can have up to seven cases to my knowledge and the adjective also has to agree with the case of the noun in some instances. Summarising: Just don't try to guess. We were lucky. Most of our domains are single words. That makes life a whole lot easier.
Fortunately the writen Thai language is very simple in most respects. No genders, no plurals, no word modifications for tenses. F-A1

The hard bit with Thai is learning how to pronounce all the "non-Thai" words. Thai is stuffed full of words that come from ancient Pali / Sanskrit, many of which which have irregular pronunciations, but that obviously doesn't matter for domain registrations.
