Foreword march!

It’s a very common mistake. Everyone knows that Abhisit Vejjajiva is a very forward-looking prime minister. So, it shouldn’t come as a surprise really that, according to Anchalee Kongrut in this morning’s Bangkok Post rambling about a wonder boy and his latest book, he ‘wrote the forward for the book’.

Nice picture of a staircase, though.

Anchalee Kongrut, whose name I believe is pronounced kong.rat, writes about a fellow who spells his name an unpronounceable Zcongklod Bangyikhan. That’s actually pronounced song.klot bang.yee.khan – I had to call his magazine, a day, to find out, given that their website (http://www.daypoets.com/aday2) offers absolutely no personal identity. Ain’t that Zcwell.

Forward-foreword: for language traps of this kind, I highly recommend consulting www.wsu.edu/~brians/errors/index.html. You might learn a thing or ten.
