English term or phrase: I LOVE YOU
To express love for another person.
DriftinDan
Thai translation:ผมรักคุณ
Explanation:
Pronounced "Pom Rak Khun"
This is a polite expression made by a man to a woman only.
"Pom" is the word that Thai men use to politely refer to themselves (equal to "I" in English, but Thai women has to use a different word to say "I").
"Rak" means "love".
"Khun" is a polite word for "You".
If you are a woman, you have to say "Chan Rak Khun".
"Rak Khun" means the same as above.
"Chan" is the word Thai women use to politely refer to themselves.

P.S. (1) Thai has many other words that mean "I" (first pronoun in English). "Pom" and "Chan" are just two of them.
P.S. (2) The first answer provided by the previous poster was also right ("Chan Rak Ter") and is commonly used, but the degree of politeness is less than the two sentences I give here. It is perfectly fine is the ages of the two lovers are not very far apart.

Thank you so much for your help. I have looked in several phrase books, but they are mainly written for travelers and would not have this phrase included! I have a Thai ladyfriend whom I have grown to love, and I wanted to express my feelings, but in her native language. Thank you!
