"The Principles of Phonetically Transcribing Thai Orthography into Roman Orthography"
แต่เดิมมาการเขียนคำไทยก็มิได้ใช้รูปวรรณยุกต์ ซึ่งอาจจะเป็นเพราะอักษรไทยดัดแปลงมาจากอักษรขอมโบราณและอักษรมอญโบราณ อักษรชุดดังกล่าวพัฒนามาจากอักษรเทวนาครีของแขกอีกทีหนึ่ง

"Originally, Thai writing did not utilize tone marks. This might have been because Thai orthography was derived from ancient Khmer and ancient Mon. These orthographies, in turn, were derived from the Indian Devanagari script."
