Phonemic Thaiปาก-กา
IPApàːk kaː
Royal Thai General Systempak ka


notesปากกา was known in the days of yore as ปากไก่ (quill). The Siamese people made their pens from hand-cut goose (or sometimes bird) feathers and called them ปากไก่ perhaps due to the quill nib's resemblance to the beak of a chicken. Then, quills with metal nibs were invented. The Siamese seemed to like to compare their quills by basing the looks of the quill nibs on those of bird beaks. It is also a Siamese Buddhist belief that crows (who wait in Hell for sinners) have steel beaks. It is thus possible to surmise that after the metal nib quills were invented and used by the Siamese people, they might change from the name ปากไก่ to ปากกา, perhaps due to the fact that the quill’s metal nib dipped in black ink looked pretty much like the beak of a crow.
