Two proto-endings *-l and *-c are reconstructed and added to the received system of Proto-Tai final consonants. These additional finals help solve some problems of the otherwise irregular correspondences among dialects, especially between Saek and other Tai varieties.

The proposed system is shown to be valid for Proto-Kra-Dai as well.
