    Re: a drunk man, and ......etc

    I assume you want as many synonyms as possible. A couple more:
    .
    dead drunk
    out of it
    out of his mind (Did I make that one up?)
    as drunk as a sailor (Did I make that one up?)
    .
    To find more, you might want to Google "synonyms for drunkenness".

    As the other helpful replies suggest, there are hundreds of terms in English for someone who is drunk. You can use different words for different degrees of drunkeness too - google will help you.

    Just be careful - do you mean เมา (drunk) or คนขี้เมา (alcholic / drunkard)?

    Re: a drunk man, and ......etc

    At first, I mean a drunk man/drunkard

    it's synonyms

    but to know more about drunk (or เมา in my language) also good for me

    Thank you,

    Suthipong.

    I am saying that people have suggested two types of words.




    The first are words for a person who is drunk right now. They might not have ever drunk alcohol before, we don't know. Usage: He/she is...
    • drunk
    • smashed
    • intoxicated
    But e2e4 has suggested word for someone who is often drunk. Usage: He/she is a...
    • heavy drinker
    • drunkard
    • wino
    • lush
    • drunkard
    Be carefull with the phrase "He is a drunk man". It might just mean that the man is drunk now. The specific phrase, "He is a drunk" suggests the man is often drunk. I find that a lot of Thai people make this error.
