Long explanation:

The term 'ถ้าหาก (thâa hàak)' is typically used in Thai to denote hypothetical scenarios, similar to 'in case' or 'if at all' in English. This conjunction is often used as a more formal version of 'ถ้า (thâa)' or 'if' in Thai, and it usually precedes the condition in the sentence. In English equivalent grammar, it is frequently seen at the beginning of conditional sentences, particularly in type 1 and 2 conditional statements.
