Grammar Notes:

All of the colors in the word list start with the word  sěe  - which means "color". This word is very similar to the Thai word for four:  sèe  but the tone is different. Note the different tone mark between  sěe  and  sèe 

When you are learning the colors, you are also learning a few other useful words, such as:

 sěe sôm  (orange) :  sôm  means the orange fruit

 sěe fáh  (light blue) : the color name is also seen in  táwng fáh  (sky) and rót fai fáh  (skytrain)

 sěe nám đahn  (brown) :  nám đahn means sugar
