Word of the Day for Tuesday, March 3, 2009:
พก /ˈpʰók/ v. to carry on one's person.
A handy verb for cell phones and the like. If you forgot your phone, you might say ลืมพก(มือถือ)มา /lʉʉm pʰók (mʉʉ tʰʉ̌ʉ) maa/.
Or if you want to remind a friend not to forget to keep their cell phone on them because of some important call, try อย่าลืมพกมือถือนะ /yàa lʉʉm pʰók mʉʉ tʰʉ̌ʉ ná/
This is less likely to come up in daily life, but it's also used with weapons, e.g. พกปืน /pʰók pʉʉn/ "carry a gun (on your person)". (In fact, a pistol or handgun is called ปืนพก /pʉʉn pʰók/.)
Bonus vocab: The alliterative double พกพา /pʰók pʰaa/ means the same thing, but it's also used as an adjective meaning "portable" or "pocket" as in พจนานุกรมฉบับพกพา ("pocket dictionary").
