  1. Classifiers are used to count.  They also are used to distinguish one of a kind, or set, from another.  In Lesson 17 it was necessary to use phūu ຜູ້ Click to Listenw to distinguish one child from another. 
     
  ລູກຜູ້ທີ່ໜຶ່ງClick to Listenw lùuk phūu thīi-nȳŋ The first child.
  ລູກຜູ້ທີ່ສອງClick to Listenw lùuk phūu thīi-sɔ̌ɔŋ The second child.
   

In this lesson, there is a similar use of khán ຄັນClick to Listenw : .

      
  ລົດຄັນສີດຳClick to Listenw lōt khán sǐi dam The black one (car).
  ລົດຄັນສີຟ້າClick to Listenw lōt khán sǐi fàa The blue one (car).

 

Compare the following two sentences:

  1. ຂ້ອຍມີເສື້ອສີເຫຼືອງClick to Listenw khɔ̌y míi sŷa sǐi ly̌aŋ I have a yellow shirt.
  2. ຂ້ອຍມີເສື້ອໂຕສີເຫຼືອງClick to Listenw khɔ̌y míi sŷa too sǐi ly̌aŋ I have the yellow shirt.

 

Sentence “1” speaks of one shirt without reference to any other.  No classifier is needed.  Sentence “2” distinguishes the yellow shirt from some other shirt of a different color, and therefore requires a classifier. 

 

  1. Note the importance of word order.
