I don’t have a problem admitting it when I am wrong, but your evasive posting style is not doing you any favors convincing me.
Why don't you just go and ask a Cambodian?

There are international standard rules for that - that's what Fax pointed out.

the one and only purpose of phonetic notation system is
ð ə w ʌ n ə n əʊ n l ɪ p ɜ: p ə s ə v f əʊ n e t ɪ k n əʊ t eɪ ʃ n s ɪ s t ə m ɪ z

to write how words are pronounced i can write like
t ə r aɪ t h aʊ w ɜ: d z ɑ: p r ə n aʊ n s t aɪ k æ n r aɪ t l aɪ k

this and you can still understand
ð ɪ s ə n j u: k æ n s t ɪ l ʌ n d ə s t æ n d
What percentage of people reading this forum do you think can understand it?

fax cant, because he is using this and getting it wrong.

Let me see.... ermmm perhaps 100% excepting old Mish as his old eyes confused and the IPA had me going - I thought you had invited me to a sesh to discover how few IPA can get me bolloxed but still turn a buck. I find most people on here to be educated. Crikey sir, Imagine a thicko trying to make it in one of the toughest countries to do business in the world. And please do not underestimate my Khmer friends who will split semantic hairs on a mosquito's ass while getting you pissed and fobbing off their immensely sexy relatives on you. :beer3: :thumb:

So I write it how it is pronounced.

So you write it according to what you find on the internet, not how it is pronounced.
everybody hears differently so writes accordingly, when i went to school here learning khmer i had a day off , somebody wrote notes for me i could not understand them

IPA is a beer by the way

And that's why there are some standards for the conversion. Apparently these don't suit @Explorer - but this doesn't change the fact there are standards which are actually being used, for instance by the Khmer government.

As people read this forum who don't speak Khmer, I will explain this. Here is the issue.

The Khmer word for ten sounds like 'dop.'
You say ten dollars. They say dop dola.

wtf?
There are some people who contribute to this forum who don't speak Khmer, but just find information on the internet. If they get it wrong, they don't know, because they don't speak the language. People who speak the language well, know how it is pronounced.

Think about the letter 'y' in English. If you look on the internet you may find out it is pronounced as in 'yes,' 'you' or 'yellow,' and that is correct.

But what about the word 'happy' or 'funny.' It is pronounced completely different.

Some letters can be pronounced differently in different situations, in English and Khmer.

What about the Khmer letter 'ប.'

When it is at the beginning of a word, it is normally pronounced like the letter 'b' in English.

But when it is at the end of a word, it is normally pronounced like the letter 'p' in English.

fax found out from the internet that it was pronounced like the 'b' in English. But missed the part where it is normally pronounced like the 'p' in English when at the end of a word.

He even missed it in the information he was providing. Notice at the right, it can be pronounced like 'b' or 'p.'

I would like to encourage people to learn Khmer. Your experience in the country may be so much better.

Here I am thinking could explorer possibly be right? Are porcine entities endowed with avian qualities? It all seems so unlikely.

Ask a Cambodian.

How do you pronounce 'ten' in Khmer?
