INTRODUCTION
John: Expressions Adapted to Sound Cuter
John: Hi everyone, and welcome back to ThaiPod101.com. I'm John.
Jay: And I'm Jay!
John: This is Must-know Thai Slang Words and Phrases, Season 1, Lesson 12. In this lesson, you'll learn some expressions adapted to sound cuter.
John: There are some words that we can change the sound of so that they sound cuter, so it’s a more fun way to communicate. Mostly, these are used on the Internet and some are used with little children.

John: Okay, what's our next expression?
Jay: ตั้ลล้าก (dtân-láak)

Jay: [SLOW] ตั้ลล้าก [NORMAL] ตั้ลล้าก
