Have you ever been called "Ah" in Khmer?

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything, whether it relates to Cambodia or not. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

Have you ever been called "Ah" in Khmer?

Post by Samouth » Tue Aug 04, 2015 5:59 pm

I guess some people here might know it, but some might not.

How many times you have been called Ah and then your name.

For example, Ah Johnny, Ah Dan, Ah Steven
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.

That when people asked you to do something or asking something from you. I am not really sure how to explain it.

No, I'm usually called "at ting ow" or "aigne". I haven't been called "ah" since I was a kid.
