Nomen[fontem recensere]

Lingua Thai fortasse melius? "Thailandica" cum nomine nationis adsimilat et morphema Germanicum "-land-" incorporat. Re vera gentes qui Thailandiam incolunt multas linguas loquuntur. In nonnullis aliis linguis (e.g. Anglice) hanc linguam "Thai" appellant (sed, admitto, in aliis etiam "Thailandese" etc.!)

Would lingua Thai be better? "Thailandica" aligns it with the name of the state, and it includes the Germanic morpheme "-land-". Whereas, in fact, people who live in Thailand speak lots of languages. In many other languages this one is called simply "Thai" ... but, I admit, in some others it is called "Thailandese" etc. Andrew Dalby (disputatio) 20:51, 17 Aprilis 2009 (UTC)
