Words in Thai

This post is my attempt to write out my pronunciation of a few Thai words in English.
I begin with my present understanding of the meaning of each. Each meaning is followed by my idea of its (phonetic) pronunciation.

a medium(like the one who helps you to communicate with your dead uncle Slim)
* khon song

house, home
* ban (a bit like a New England barn)

elephant
* Cha-ang

water
* nam (as in Viet nam)
