Hello Scott,


Thank you very much for your comment and question. Yes, there are different because, they are a different word. "mái" is a question particle, while "máai" -wood / (dtôn-máai) -tree/(bai-máai)-leaf/ (phûm-máai)- bush and (dàawk-máai)-flower. Hope that's help. Please let me know if you have any future questions. I will be glad to help. We wish you will have a good progress with your Thai.


Have a good day.

In the Romanization, you sometimes use 'mai' or 'maai'. It's better to use just one throughout. I had initially thought the sounds were different.
