more rural is idioms

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.

Sorry Jamie, no Khmer keyboard.
if youre able to upload photos, next time, ask if you can get someone to write them on a piece of paper and i can copy it form there,
theres so many different ways to spell khmer words with the multitude of similar sounding consonants and vowels,
similar to words in English like Where, Wear, Were, Ware, There, Their, Theyre, To, Two, Too etc. etc.
They're.

I don't think that's a rural idiom. I've heard it before and just asked my girlfriend and she knows it too (and she's from PP). So technically I think it's not a rural idiom but simply a Khmer one.
First, I am very appreciative for the feedback. I'm
glad you were able to read my phonetics and hope you agree with the translation. I call my idioms "rural" since I learn them from highly uneducated or illiterate peasants. Bit people travel and hence so does language. It is entirely possible that I hear something with urban roots in my small village and that you hear an idiom of rural origins in Phnom Penh. Whatever the case may be, I thank you for your input.

Krolech Kroloch = ក្រឡេចក្រឡុច
Thanks! :D

ក្រឡេច - Krolech - to try to escape; to dodge, evade, elude; to try to get out of doing something with lame excuses, to seek a method of shirking (something); to change one's mind abruptly; to be fickle; to be scheming.
ក្រឡេច - Krolech - trick, scheme

cant find an individual translation for ក្រឡុច - Kroloch though

but ive got a translation for the phrase as a whole...
Krolech Kroloch
ក្រឡេចក្រឡុច - Untrustworthy, Tricky, Untruthful
