They speak Thai. There is other types of people in Thailand like Chinese, Indian, English, Jamaican. They all speak their native languages of course but Thais speak Thai.
The northeast area is a little different dialect though but still Thai. So some thais in the south may have problems understand thais in the northeast because the language is just a tad bit different. this is kind of how people from Boston have an accent that people from California do not have or maybe they use different slang words.
Thai is the official language of Thailand.
Thai is the official language, but Chinese, Lao, Malay, and Mon-Khmer are also spoken. English is becoming more popular in universities, commerce, and government.

Thai language is a language that Thai people speak.
Thailand has one language, but several dialects. The national language is the Central Thai (Bangkok Thai). In the far south, East and North there are other dialects. In the East there is influenmce of Laos and Cambodian. The North of Thailand was a separate country (Siam in the SOuth and Lanna in the North) - Chiang Mai was the capital which actually was considered a captured country until WW2 when it became part of Thailand (it is noe Tjaoilans second city after Bangkok). Lanna is distinctly different.
All use the same script, which is Khmer based (which is Sanskrit based - nbut there are many arguments about this). Thai had 46 consonents and dozens of vowels (onl;y consonents are considered to be the alphabet). It is an alphabetic language (as opposed to pictographoc like Chinese or Japanese etc) - although vowels can preceed, follow, be above or below the consonet. Consonents are always pronounced first (although some have no actual sound but are written).
Thai is tinal and the same transliterated word can mean several things - with a different tone. There are also several letters for some sounds as we hear in English (e.g. the first 5 letters of the Thai alphabet would be transliterated as G, K, K, K, K, K - thge problem here is self eveident, but it is not a probelm for a Thai as each sounds different or is in a different class) - Thai is almost pure in that it is read as spelled in almost all cases once the grammatical rules are learned.
