Any French people who speak Khmer?

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 noticed this in the Wikipedia.

On 9 March 1945, during the Japanese occupation of Cambodia, young king Norodom Sihanouk proclaimed an independent Kingdom of Kampuchea, following a formal request by the Japanese. Shortly thereafter the Japanese government nominally ratified the independence of Cambodia and established a consulate in Phnom Penh. The new government did away with the romanisation of the Khmer language that the French colonial administration was beginning to enforce and officially reinstated the Khmer script.

It seems, at one time Khmer was written using the French alphabet.

Vietnamese was too, and still is.
You read Wikipedia?

I thought you wrote Wikipedia!

Explorer, you make all kinds of wrong assumptions. The Vietnamese alphabet has nothing to do with the French alphabet.

It's based on mainly on Portuguese and has some Italian, Greek and Latin influences.

Thanks for that. You have taught me something.
