Remark* “ทุกๆ” [túk túk] can also be used to emphasize the meaning e.g. “ทุกๆสามปี” [túk túk sǎam pii] “every 3 years.” Note that this is not the same as “ตุ๊กๆ” [dtúk dtúk] which refers to the Thai motor tricycle taxi. The “t” sound in “ทุกๆ” [túk túk] (every) is aspirated whereas that in the “ตุ๊กๆ” [dtúk dtúk] is unaspirated (not pronounced with the sound of a breath.)
