One Word A Day : ชี

Today’s word is ชี//chee

It sounds pretty simple. But do you know what it means?

1. A nun; sometimes แม่ชี//mâe chee is also used. This is applicable to both Buddhism and Christianity context.

2. (slang) She; (can’t it get anymore obvious?) this is probably taken from an English word, it is (obviously) used to refer to a lady, however, in a rather mocking tone; sometimes นาง//naang is also used.
