Introduction
Eric: Welcome to 3-Minute Thai Season 1, Lesson 18 - Possession. In this lesson, you’ll learn how to talk about possession in Thai.
Body
Eric: Here's the informal way to say "Do you have a pen?" in Thai.

Eric: First is a pronoun meaning "You"
Jay: [Normal] เธอ [Slow] เธอ (thooe)
Eric: Next is the verb meaning "to have"
Jay: [Normal] มี [Slow] มี(mii)
Eric: Next is the word meaning “pen"
Jay: [Normal] ปากกา [Slow] ปากกา(pàak-gaa)
Eric: Last is the particle indicating a yes or no question.
Jay: [Normal] ไหม [Slow] ไหม(máai)
Eric: Listen again to the informal phrase meaning "Do you have a pen?"
Jay: [Slow] เธอมีปากกาไหม [Normal] เธอมีปากกาไหม
Eric: Ok, now let's take a look at the formal way to say "Do you have a pen?"
Jay: [Normal] คุณมีปากกาไหมคะ(khun mii bpàak-gaa máai khá)

Jay: [Normal] คุณ [Slow] คุณ (khun)
Eric: Next is the verb meaning "to have"
Jay: [Normal] มี [Slow] มี(mii)

Eric: Last is the sentence ending particle used to make questions and requests polite if you are a female speaker.
Jay: [Normal] คะ [Slow] คะ(khá)
Eric: Listen again to the formal phrase meaning "Do you have a pen?"
Jay: [Slow] คุณมีปากกาไหมคะ [Normal] คุณมีปากกาไหมคะ
Eric: Following is the way to say "Yes, I do." as a female speaker.
Jay: [Normal] มีค่ะ(mii khâ)
Eric: First is a verb meaning "to have"

Jay: [Normal] ค่ะ [Slow] ค่ะ(khâ)
Eric: Listen again to the phrase meaning "Yes, I do." as a female speaker.
Jay: [Slow] มีค่ะ [Normal] มีค่ะ
Eric: Finally, here is a way to say "Here you are." as a female speaker
Jay: [Normal] นี่ค่ะ(nîi khâ)
Eric: First is a pronoun meaning “this"
Jay: [Normal] นี่ [Slow] นี่(nîi)
Eric: Last is the sentence ending particle used to make requests polite if you are a female speaker.
Jay: [Normal] ค่ะ [Slow] ค่ะ(khâ)
Eric: Listen again to the phrase meaning "Here you are." if you are a female speaker.
Jay: [Slow] นี่ค่ะ [Normal] นี่ค่ะ
Cultural Insight
Eric: Now it's time for a quick cultural insight.
Jay: If you need something urgently, you can add châi mǎi? at the end of the question to emphasize your request. This is a particle indicating a yes or no question. For example, if you really need a phone now, you can ask your friend saying khun mii thoo-rá-sàp, châi mǎi? It means “You have a phone, don’t you?” But be sure to use this phrase only in an informal situation.

Outro

Eric: And that’s all for this lesson. Don’t forget to check out the lesson notes, and we’ll see you in the next lesson!
Jay: สวัสดี ค่ะ
