  (แค่)

"kâe"  means "just [only] , no more than"


We use  "kâe" when we feel something is not much , not many or not enough .
So it depends on the people.


For example, if your monthly salary is 50,000 baht  but you think it is not much or not enough for you. You can say
"kâe"

(ผมได้เงินเดือนแค่ 50,000 บาท)
[male speaker]
I got monthly salary just 50,000 per month.



But for me 50,000 baht per month is enough , so I don't use "kâe". I would say...
