Khun vs Nay


Recommended Posts

นาย นาง is not more honorific than คุณ


while nai appears on official document, if used when addressing the person it is considered condescending. It's only used when a teacher or your mom calls you by your full name, or an official calls you out from a queue at the Amphur or addressed on the envelope when your bill is overdue  


คุณ is only afforded when you consider someone you're speaking to to be  of honor, whereas นาย or นาง(สาว) could be any farmer or laborer
