nah... the R should be pronounced more like an L

"klah-tom"

cos thai is a script language there is a phonetic version written with the english alphabet "thaiglish" to teach us dumb ass westerners without us having to know all the thai characters.
but they stitched us up by it not being exactly as english is pronounced lol

R pronounced like L
U pronounced like A
B pronounced like P

not strictly true, but along those lines...

I always say Krah-Tom like a bunch of others here and am quick to say "however you pronounce it".

I feel like Marge Simpson: "Is that right? I've only ever read it in books".

Doc teaches. :awesome:

But I think most people without such knowledge say Krah-tom.

Some americans may say - crate-om, some british might say: Kray-tom. Lolz.

krah- would be more of an English pronunciation, I'd think, whereas kray- would constitute as a North American one.

I am a Canadian and call it "kray-tum".
