The purposes of this research are to study and develop
the algorithm of Thai spoonerism words by semi-automatic computer
programs, that is to say, in part of data input, syllables are already
separated and in part of spoonerism, the developed algorithm is
utilized, which can establish rules and mechanisms in Thai
spoonerism words for bi-syllables by utilizing analysis in elements of
the syllables, namely cluster consonant, vowel, intonation mark and
final consonant. From the study, it is found that bi-syllable Thai
spoonerism has 1 case of spoonerism mechanism, namely
transposition in value of vowel, intonation mark and consonant of
both 2 syllables but keeping consonant value and cluster word (if
From the study, the rules and mechanisms in Thai spoonerism
word were applied to develop as Thai spoonerism word software,
utilizing PHP program. the software was brought to conduct a
performance test on software execution; it is found that the program
performs bi-syllable Thai spoonerism correctly or 99% of all words
used in the test and found faults on the program at 1% as the words
obtained from spoonerism may not be spelling in conformity with
Thai grammar and the answer in Thai spoonerism could be more than
