What is the difference of คน, นัก and ผู้ etc.?

Postby Aulok » Thu Jul 04, 2019 3:20 am

Hi, everyone! I am curious about the difference of the modern usage of the nominalizers คน, นัก and ผู้.

Perhaps the difference is that the nouns formed by them can imply depreciatory or respectful meanings.

I understand that nouns formed with พ่อ, นาง, นาย and บุรุษ seldom have depreciatory meanings.

Could anyone brief on their usages? Many thanks!
