What does this mean?

Postby AngelaW » Mon Jul 07, 2014 9:07 am

I found this interesting sign, which obviously indicates some sort of danger :?: As I don't read Lao yet, I was wondering if any of you can help me translate its meaning :D

My guess is it would have to do with landmines in some way.

Thanks a lot guys :)

It's really not my image, it was just something I stumbled over on the internet ;) As I am eager to learn the Lao language, I tried to study signs as suggested by someone else over here:

viewtopic.php?f=4&t=82#.U7vAO5R_sYE

With my study book by my side I think I can read some of this sign actually, but I have no clue what it says :silent:

@edartlee: thanks for asking your teacher :D

sup .. here's a quick reply ...

it means.. "something like .." .. "There's a waterfall, do not get too close to it..." , my teacher said, that it's Ok. to go in there, but just be aware of the waterfall, as it can be dangerous .. haha..

she did made a quick explanation word-by-word.. but sorry, I only remember the message as a whole ... hope this helps .. :D

Thanks - I would never have guessed it had to do with a waterfall. Even with the dictionary I'm unsure where to start... :think: It would help if they used spaces to separate their words ;)
