Which Thai reclist should I use?
We have 4 Thai reclists that we'd recommend:
- Thai VCCV download (reclist by PRINTmov)
- Thai VCV download (reclist by PRINTmov)
- Thai CVVC download (reclist by fEriNa)
- Thai CVVC 2017 download (fEriNa's reclist, edited by PRINTmov)
It's up to you to choose whether you will record CVVC, CVVC 2017 or VCCV, they share the same sound symbols.
Although, you won't be able to find "Thai CVVC 2017" USTs yet, because not many people record it.
