Real Thai Conversation Fillers

Every Language is more than just Subject + Verb + Object(or whatever order it comes in).  In a real conversation you will have conversation fillers.  Some people call them conversational connectors.  What ever you call them they are what bridges you from one sentence to the other in a natural way.  This is where real fluency begins.  As I learn/hear/remember these phrases, I will post them here on this page.  You will want to check back often so that you get the most up to date list that I have.
