    Thai is a tonal language, with the meaning of each syllable
    determined by the pitch at which it is pronounced. Standard
    Thai has five tones - mid, low, high, rising and falling.
    Thai has no noun or verb inflections: a noun has a single
    form, with no distinction between singular and plural, while
    past, present and future time can be conveyed by a single
    verb form. Like many other South-East Asian languages, Thai
    has a complex pronoun system, which reflects gender, age,
    social status, the formality of the situation and the degree
    of intimacy between speakers. Much of the original Thai
    lexicon is monosyllabic; a high percentage of polysyllabic
    words are foreign borrowings, particularly from the classical
    Indian languages, Sanskrit and Pali.
