Abstract: Deception detection, especially in online communication, is a burgeoning area of research, but most previous studies have focused on English. Therefore, in this paper, we investigate the applicability of English deceptive features to Thai and also examine whether there are any Thai-specific features not found in English which are associated with Thai deception in online communication. 96 Thai-language chat dialogues were analyzed with results suggesting that features identified in English deception research cannot be transferred to Thai. Two Thai-specific indicators of deception were also identified. The results have implications for theories of deception detection and for the transfer of research findings between languages.
