Gau Gai กอ ไก่ – Second Edition

There are both substantive and subtle changes to the Thai Alphabet Cards. For the Thai Consonants, we add the ten numbers (0-9) as ten additional cards, and then on the consonant cards themselves, the significant changes are: - Multiple English Transliteration / Transcription (Haas/AUA, IPA, Paiboon) - Multiple font (typeface) variations (JS Thanaporn, JS Sirium, Purisa, JS Chanok, JS Chawlewhieng) - Improvements to the tone graph, and - Indicating the tone rule for the class inside the image for the consonant (an attempt at a visual mnemonic for tone class rules/tone class membership) What has not changed (and remain from the original edition) includes: - The Sammy Diagram for the manner and place of articulation of the consonant sound; - The Thai consonant name; - The writing order and direction; - An indicator of a dead or live consonant (triangle or circle); - Inside the dead/live indicator, the sound for the consonant when it is in final consonant position; - An indicator of the tone rules for the class (mid-tone for long vowels, low-tone for short vowels); - The name of the class to which it belongs; and - The number of the card (in the deck order)
