It's a French word.

We tend to create funny words from English/French words.

"Motorsai" for motorcycle, "Jing jo" for kangaroo, for example.

'Motorsai' is Thai. In Laos we say, 'Lot juck'.

I didn't know we have kangaroos in Laos. Grin

We say many words along with the Thais.

We don't have kangaroos in Laos, we just call them that way.

We have television, internet and books in Laos.

Therefore, we see the outside world.

Yes, that's right, you tell him.

We live in the same planet, Larb Dip. We have seen many of the things that you have seen in this world, and outer space.

Is it a loan word? Perhaps Pali or Sanskrit, because it doesn't sound Lao? One too many syllables. Grin


Lao people invariably shorten and simplify words, including foreign and hybrid words.

ice cream

cream

caleam

karaam

or with the transilteration above -

galaam

I really like Admin's sense of humour - very dry Cheesy.  However she goes straight to the point on all comments.  Some of pictures that she upload, it does take me awhile  to figure out on what she is trying tp tell us.
