I suggest you listen to how Cambodians say it, rather than getting it from the internet.

One of the first things people learn is 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10.

As I have shown according to both IPA and UN it is b. I don’t know which standard you think you are using. At least it is clear that you are not spelling it in accordance with the International Phonetic Alphabet.

I suggest that your ears are not very good at distinguishing sounds.

If you wish to discuss this further you should take it up with the International Phonetic Association. I’m sure they will be very keen to hear your argument that they should listen to Cambodians speak and learn to count.

So you think your (false) interpretation of something you found on the internet is correct, and the entire Cambodian population speaks their own language wrong. If you even do more research on the internet, you will realize there is more to it.

It is even better if you speak Khmer to Cambodians and see if they understand you.

Nice straw man.

I said that according to IPA and UN standards it is romanized with b. Which standard are you using for your romanization and how does it handle the conflict with the actual word dop, as in motodop? Oh right you don’t have one, you just write how it sounds to your Aussie ears. I’ll stick to IPA thank you very much.

Stop being such a bore.

Can confirm from Kampong Som to Kampong Speu, From Kampot to Kampong Thom, From Phnom Penh to Pailin and Svay Rieng to Siem Reap the pronunciation is "b"

it is Dob for 10. Not Dop. and is pronounced the same across cambodia. Just admit it explorer you are incorrect. In fact considering your posturing and supposed experience and expertise in Cambodia always rings completely untrue for any of us who have spent some time here I suggest you perhaps go down the beauty parlor and get a nice $2 ear clean to scoop out the wax that is so affecting your ability to hear simple sounds and stop sounding so arrogant when you are clearly wrong. Your tag line is correct, you do think you know the answers but you dont. Good day Sir.

As I've observed previously the p/b sound is somehow both and yet neither. Even the dictionary I have uses 'pb' to express it. Try not to lose any sleep over it.

Looking at a potential visa overstay of a week or less. It used to be you could overstay your visa and just pay $5 per day at exit. Is that rule still in place? I'm likely to be exiting overland.

How do you pronounce សៀមរាប?

I pronounce it Siem Reap.

Is someone going to say it is Siem Reab.
