How Do You Spell RUAM?
The word "ruam" is spelled with three letters: R-U-A-M, and is pronounced /ruəm/ in IPA phonetic transcription. This Thai word means "rash" or "skin eruption". Despite being a short word, it contains a vowel sound that is notoriously difficult for English speakers to produce. The phoneme /ə/ is known as a schwa, and is the most common vowel sound in the English language. However, it is rarely used in stressed syllables, making it rare in English, but important in other languages like Thai.
