About the Language
Khmer, also called Cambodian, is the language of the Khmer people and the official language of Cambodia. With over 15 million native speakers worldwide, it is the second most widely spoken language in the Austro-Asiatic family, just after Vietnamese. Khmer is spoken natively in Cambodia, Vietnam, Thailand, the United States, France, and Australia. The language displays influences from Sanskrit and Pali, and it differs from neighboring languages such as Thai, Lao, and Vietnamese in that it is not a tonal language.
Enhanced PDF Features
The Audio Forum® Difference: Audio Forum® PDF books are enhanced with links to MP3 audio files. Speaker icons in the text allow you to hear the corresponding audio. The MP3 files can also be loaded onto your MP3-compatible CD player or digital media player. The PDF books may be read (without enhanced features) on tablet computers. A 10-inch or larger screen is recommended.
