Confirming Information

Thai has yet another type of question format that you can use when you are not sure if the information you have is correct. Just like ใช่ไหม, it is added to the end of a statement. But it is more like a way of confirming that the statement is true or false.

หรือ เปล่า (rǔu blào)

Loosely translated, rǔu blào means or not?

Listen to these examples:

เขา ชื่อ ทักษิณ
His name is Taksin.
เขา ชื่อ ทักษิณ หรือ เปล่า
Is his name is Taksin, or not?
