    • nateswag commented : [quote="beau58":3ummj5m8][quote="MICHAI":3ummj5m8]I am curisouly thre're many E-San women are married to the foreigner,many fo them that i met in Europe and elsewhere they're not genuine Thai, but Laos women they're speaking not the same dialect like Ppl in Bangkok[/quote:3ummj5m8] Very few people in Thailand are "genuine Thai". It's one of the great myths perpetuated and systemized by the dominant Thai establishment centred in Bangkok and the central plains, the traditional home of the ethnic Thais. In reality, the country is actually ethnically and linguistically quite diverse. For example, the Isaan language is predominately drawn from Lao, although itself broken down into many regional dialects. Also, in parts of Isaan, such as Buriram and Surin people speak Mon-Khmer and in places like Udon Thani and Nakhon Phanom they speak Nyaw. While Thais consider Thai superior to Isaan-Lao, which they somewhat derisively see as merely a Northeast dialect mixing Thai and Lao, it's actually Thai that is more likely a dialect of Lao, than a separate language. Among the many other languages and dialects spoken are Southern Thai, Lanna (Northern Thai), Yawi-Malay, Phuan, Lua, Shan, and Thai Dam. The truth is, the further one gets from Bangkok, the less successful proper Thai language acquisition becomes as the regional languages and dialects are the local lingua franca. In Isaan, or Lanna (Northern Thailand), Thai is seldom spoken, unless to Thais who are from outside the region. Then Thai becomes the common language out of necessity more than desire. Therefore, is it any wonder that learning other languages such as English becomes a major challenge for the majority of the people.[/quote:3ummj5m8] You've definitely done your research. Most Thais don't even know where they came from or who they are descended from. A lot of Central Thais are also descended from Lao people. When Bangkok was founded it was over 50% Lao from Luang Prabang, Laos and Champasack, Laos. King Thaksin(Chinese) and then King Rama 1(Mon) forcibly brought tons of Laotians to populate Central Thailand. Then after Siam defeated the Lao Lanxang Kingdom in 1827-28, Rama III brought even more Laotians from Vientiane to populate Bangkok and the surrounding provinces. They mirrored their new kingdom after what Vientiane was. In fact the majority of temples in BKK of that period was built by Lao designers/labor and built in mirror image to how Vientiane, Laos had looked like. Tons of Khmers were also brought over. This is all Thai history you can only learn outside of Thailand. Northern Thais can be a bit arrogant but Lanna itself was always a little brother to other Kingdoms(Burmese, Thai, Lao). Northern Thai culture is a mixture of various Tai(Tai Yai, Tai Lue, Lao), Mon and Burmese culture. The term Khammuang(language) and Khonmuang(people) is just a term created by BKK to group Northern Thais together.
