Abstract

In undertaking my research on the classification of Thai-Kedah dialects, Umaiyah (2003) under a study leave grant from the University of Malaya, I came across Thai Buddhists who regard themselves as Malaysians, a minority group living in small communities in Kedah, Malaysia. These small communities are scattered in the state of Kedah, centred on Buddhist temples living peacefully with the predominantly majority Malay community. of interest in this paper is the community living in Naka, Kedah.
