In the Thai language, chili or pepper.

Usually followed by another term to specify which species of chili, as in prik kee noo = "mouse shit pepper". So-called because of their size and shape or their ubiquity, I'm not sure. Also as in prik thai = "Thai pepper", or peppercorns, which as sneff has ably pointed out, are the original pepper in Thailand.
