Prai (Phray) or Phai, also known as Thin (Theen, Htin) and Kha Sam Liam, is a Mon–Khmer language of Thailand and Laos. It is one of several closely related languages, such as Mal, which go by the names Prai and Thin. It is sometimes distinguished as Pray 1; the Ban Wen dialect has been labeled Pray 3. The East Pua Pray variety has been referred to as Pray 2 and has also been known as Lua'[4] (see Lua' language (disambiguation).
