Mother in Law in Thai Language
Grandparents, as elders, should also be treated with respect in the culture of the country. They are, after all, your parents` parents. Again, we have different words depending on whether the grandparents are paternal (paternal) or maternal (maternal). How to approach terms/tenderness: A husband and wife usually call each other by name or by a pet name. However, once they have a child, they usually start calling themselves the terms „father” and „mother.” When addressing parents, you can use the word „mae” (แม่) for mother/mother and the word „phaw” (พ่อ) for father/father. Then you also need to know the words to address the in-laws, especially since you will spend a lot of time with them. There are different names depending on whether they are the husband`s or wife`s parents. In the Thai language, people usually use proverbs in conversation.

Regardless of nationality or mother tongue, the family is the basic institution for all. So it makes sense that you learn to describe your family members when you`re learning a new language.

Example: Grandma cooks very tasty Thai dishes while Grandma cooks a delicious Thai dessert khun yâa tham aa-hăan thai à-ràauy mâak nai khà-nà thîi khun yaai tham khà-nŏm thai à-ràauy „One of my grandmothers can cook delicious Thai food while the other can cook delicious Thai sweets.” blogs.transparent.com/thai/vocabulary-for-the-thai-family/ www.thaiworldview.com/family.htm Starting from the side paternal, we have the Thai word for grandmother, which is „yaa” (grandmother). „DTAA” (eye) for grandmother or grandfather.

Since Thai King Rama IX. called the Father of the Earth (phâaw khǎawng phàaen-din), it makes sense for us to call King Rama IX`s wife Mother of the Earth (mâae khǎawng phàaen-din), which means „Mother of the Thai people” in Thai.
(Its literal meaning is mother of the earth.) This means that if you want to know what a woman likes, look at her mother. The father-in-law on the woman`s side is called „phaw pan ra yaa” (พ่อภรรยา).

Then, on the side of the husband of the family, there is the father-in-law `phaw saa mii` (พ่อสามี) and the mother-in-law `mae saa mii` (แม่สามี). Example: น้าปิติเป็นน้องเขยของแม่ náa bpì-dtì bpen náawng khǒoei khǎawng mâae „Uncle Piti is my mother`s brother-in-law.” Many foreign students at my Thai language school find this complicated and difficult to understand, as the father and mother side of the family has different names or titles depending on the relationship.

In addition to แม่ (mâae), Thais also use หม่าม๊า (màa-máa), หม่ามี๊ (màa-míi) and ม๊า (máa). Thai families are often large and confusing. The names we use to address each person in the family are based on the father`s side, the mother`s side and seniority.
