Untitled[edit]

The link in the references section: "Basic Isaan phrases (Some basic Isaan phrases with sound files)" is dead and has moved to a new address at http://siamsmile.webs.com/isaan/isaan.html. I tried editing in the new address, but it was removed. Hope someone can correct it. Thanks. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Blutey (talkcontribs) 10:15, 13 November 2009 (UTC)
