FFS - not even consensus on the alphabet?

Have questions or resources regarding Khmer Culture? This forum is all about the Kingdom of Cambodia's culture. Khmer language, Cambodian weddings, French influence, Cambodian architecture, Cambodian politics, Khmer customs, etc? This is the place. Living in Cambodia can cause you to experience a whole new level of culture shock, so feel free to talk about all things related to the Khmer people, and their traditions. And if you want something in Khmer script translated into English, you will probably find what you need.

At the time I made this table, I took 1500 popular Khmer words and wrote an algorithm to spit out how many words of the 1500 contained each character. in parenthesis is the English keyboard equivalent for typing. The others, vowels, diacritics and supplemental consonants are in different tables. There are a whole bunch of tables in the android software learnitbetter that I thought were useful. similar letter tables, and sorted by the english alphabet, ect. If anyone knows where I can rent an apple computer for a week I'll port it to iphone .

It is really true that Khmer is a very hard language to learn specially when it comes to writing. There are 33 consonants and many vowels in our language. Even though i am Cambodia, i learned it for many years or so 12 years, but i still find it hard to remember them. By the way that word Australia showed in the picture was written wrongly. We don't write អូស្ដ្រាសី but អូស្ត្រាលី. They look quite similar but អូស្ត្រាសី doesn't make any sense in our language.
បើសិនធ្វើចេះ ចេះឲ្យគេកោត បើសិនធ្វើឆោត ឆោតឲ្យគេអាណិត។

If you know a lot, know enough to make them respect you, if you are stupid, be stupid enough so they can pity you.
