Regional Cambodian Dialect/Accent

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.

I'm not so sure as the song is ទៅណាមកណានាង. Maybe he thinks I am a chick as the word នាង neang is used for women.

Got it, epidemiks!

I think I have the hang of it after reading the link provided by Raybull.

It feels weird and strange to me. មា​​ ពី​ ណក , មក ពី​ ណា i looked up the dictionary and don't see any hidden meanings so i guess maybe it's just for fun.

Yeah it's just wordplay, much of it probably just to get a girl to smile.

I feel like it's written by a dude smoking kachaa or it's like a 10 years old kid's song.
