What you should know about May in Thai

by | May 21, 2020 | Vocabulary

May in Thai is พฤษภาคม pronounced préut-sà-paa kom. Like all months (เดือน deuan) in Thai that have 31 days, it ends with คม (kom).

The abbreviated version of พฤษภาคม is พ.ค.

The beginning of พฤษภาคม is พฤษภ (préut) coming from the Taures zodiac sign. The reason for this is that months in Thai all come from zodiac signs.
