ວັນ ໃນ ອາທິດ,ເດືອນ ໃນ ປີ Days of the week, Months of the Year
Hello everyone! ສະບາຍດີທຸກຯຄົນ!
Day in Lao is " Wan" and Month is Deurn and Year is Pii But the word order is quite opposite from English. For example: Monday - Wan Jan- ວັນຈັນ Here are the days of the week. Wan Khan ວັນຄານ - Tuesday Wan Phoud ວັນພຸດ - Wednesday Wan Pha Hud ວັນພະຫັດ -Thursday Wan Souk ວັນສຸກ - Friday Wan Sao ວັນເສົາ - Saturday Wan Aar Thid ວັນອາທິດ - Sunday Let's look at months of the year. There are two way to communicate about months. Easy way if you learn about numbers you can just use number after the word month which is " Deurn " ເດືອນ and the other one is just remember each month's names. I am listing easy way, the formal way,phonetic and Lao written words respectively. Deurn Song ( 2 )- ( Deurn) Koum Pa- ເດືອນກຸມພາ February Deurn Sam ( 3 )- ( Deurn) Mee Na- ເດືອນມີນາ March Deurn See ( 4 )- ( Deurn) Me Sa- ເດືອນເມສາ April Deurn Haa ( 5 )- ( Deurn) Pird Sa Pa- ເດືອນພຶດສະພາ May Deurn Hok ( 6 )- ( Deurn) Mee Thou Na- ເດືອນມີຖຸນາ June Deurn Jed ( 7 )- ( Deurn) Kor La Kod- ເດືອນກໍລະກົດ July Deurn Pad ( 8 )- ( Deurn) Sing Ha- ເດືອນສິງຫາ August Deurn Kao ( 9 )- ( Deurn) Kan Ya- ເດືອນກັນຍາ September Deurn Sib ( 10 )- ( Deurn) Tou La- ເດືອນຕຸລາ October Deurn Sib Ed ( 11 )- ( Deurn) Pa Jik Ka- ເດືອນພະຈິກກາ November Deurn Sib Song ( 12 )- ( Deurn) Thun Wa- ເດືອນທັນວາ December In Lao we write Day/ Month/ Year ,which is different from US as well ( Month/Day/Year). It took me a while to get used to but I still mess up once in a while if I have to date any paper. Pii Song Pun Sib Ha -ປີສອງພັນສິບຫ້າ. I will do another post more about numbers but if you need to learn from 1-10 here is the post . Here are some samples on using day/month/ year.
Please write it in Lao or phonetic word for this phrase. Wednesday, August 16th 2016.
