There's no more occurrences of แแ in the document, which is the typo you reported in the OP. If there's another typo you'll have to specify what it is..

> To be honest, i'd prefer a table here rather than the added complication of a single sentence where the language used for punctuation doesn't seem to be clear

I could change it to a table, but a large part of the point here is dealing with mixed script text, so I'd rather keep it all in a single paragraph. I've removed all the punctuation, though, to avoid the problems you mentioned. Let me know if this is acceptable.

> I was actually expecting strict to produce the greater number of break opportunities, rather than fewer, since i intuitively associated strictness with delimiting primitive words. (?)

The progression is less opportunities -> more opportunities going from `anywhere` -> `loose` -> `normal` -> `strict`. I don't think making an exception here to make Thai go backwards is a good idea.
