Simple - 4 those with a sense of humor

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.

Indeed, Jamie, adding words to other words. I often use the phrase, when asked how I am,
sok sabaaie tomada......I'm just fine, as usual,...I'm okay.....

google translate is not a dictionary, it is really bad for translating Khmer...
if you put your Tomada then you get this...

if you know how google translate works you can see that even google translate doesnt give "Tomada" as meaning Simple, you just need to know how to check it... here you can see GT actually gives "Samanh" as the translation of "Simple" not "Tomada"...
