English term or phrase: Nurse
What is the Thai word for nurse? Is there in English transliteration?
Gabriel Poll
¾ÂÒºÒÅ phayaban
Explanation:
à¹ÔÃì«Ú is the Thai transliteration of the English word.
Noun: ¹Ò§¾ÂÒºÒÅ 'nang phayaban' is the usual term for a nurse, since nurses are commonly assumed to be female, a male nurse would be a 'phayaban phu chai'.
Verb: ¾ÂÒºÒÅ, 'phayaban' is the verb, either transitive or intransitive.

Pronunciation: The 'ph' is NOT like 'f' but is a softish 'p'. All the 'a's are as in 'father', but the first one is very brief.
