The Pray are an ethnic group in Thailand.

Name Variation[edit]

The Pray are also commonly referred to as Pray 3 among social scientists, to disambiguate them from the related Phai people, who are also sometimes referred to as Pray (Pray 1).[1]


The Pray speak a language also called Pray, which is a Khmuic language.[1] The Khmuic languages are Austro-Asiatic.[1] There is some debate as to whether the Khmuic languages are of the Mon-Khmer branch, but the majority opinion is that they are not.[citation needed]
