ปลอม/เทียม

Postby John » Tue Dec 11, 2018 6:00 am

Several years ago I purchased a "Sony" memory card in Bangkok. When put in my camera it turned out to be fake.
What word would I use to describe it "ปลอม" or "เทียม"?

From the Longdo dictionary:

ของปลอม [N] fake, See also: counterfeit, artificial goods, Syn. ของเทียม, ของเก๊, Ant. ของจริง, ของแท้,

Example: น้ำหอมเหล่านี้เป็นของปลอมเพราะกลิ่นผิดไปจากของจริงมาก
"This perfume is fake because its fragrance is different from the real thing."

Here is a sentence from a newspaper:

"นักธุรกิจชาวไทยเป็นพุทธศาสนิกชน ทำธุรกรรมก็ยังยึดหลักคุณธรรม โดยทั่วไปจะไม่หลอกลวงลูกค้า ไม่ขายของปลอมหรือของด้อยคุณภาพ"
Thai businessmen are Buddhists and they conduct their business in accordance with Buddhist principles. Generally the do not cheat their customers and they do not sell counterfeit goods or low quality products.

I would say that the meaning of 'เทียม' is close to that of 'artificial' -- "made or produced to copy something natural; not real", but the meaning of 'ปลอม' is "(disapproving) not genuine", which means fake.

เทียม
(made or produced to copy something natural; not real)

In formal or academic contexts, ฟันเทียม is chosen.
