Christopher G. Moore: Heart Talk (Thailand 2006)
From the Publisher:
Heart Talk is a unique study of the emotional range of the Thai language, mastering the use of the word jai or heart in many different contexts. It provides an insight into how Thai speakers express their feelings in ways understood by Thais in different situations.
Heart Talk is an essential language survival kit as you explore the Thai language, culture and people. It opens the door to the private realm of the Thai language -- the linguistic heartscape where ideas take shape, feelings are formed, moods floated, and relationships started or mended when broken.
