Profile

Khmer, also known as Cambodian, is an Austroasiatic language alongside Vietnamese. These two are the most widely spoken languages in this language group.

Unlike nearby languages such as Thai or Vietnamese, Khmer is not a tonal language. The stress on words is always on the last syllable.

Khmer uses the Khmer script, which is a syllabic script meaning each character includes a consonant and inherent vowel. About 80% of Cambodians can read Khmer.
