Thai Verb Tense

Strictly speaking, the Thai language does not have verb tenses. Verbs do not change their form. An adverb of time can be added to show when something happens. Verb tense is also expressed by using time markers, special words that indicate the time at which an action occurs.

Past

Example:
She went yesterday.
เขา ไป เมื่อ วาน นี้
Kŏw pbai mûea-wahn-née.
Wfw: She go yesterday.
* Although the word "pbai ไป" is a verb in the present tense, the addition of the word mûea-wahn-née shows that the action occured in the past.
An action that occurred in the past can also be expressed by adding the time marker "láeo" (แล้ว) to the end of the sentence. Láeo can be translated as "already."
Example:
We went to Laos.
เรา ไป ประเทศ ลาว แล้ว
Row pbai pbrà-têt laao láeo.
Wfw: We go country Laos already.
Mâi dâi before a verb also indicates that the action has already occurred. Mâi dâi can be translated as "did not."
Example:
We didn’t go to Laos.
เรา ไม่ ได้ ไป ประเทศ ลาว
Row mâi dâi pbai pbrà-têt laao.
Wfw: We not did go country Laos.
