I need input for suprising, shocking, rude, funny, slang words or phrases

Postby STAZ96 » Sat Jan 13, 2018 11:34 am

Hey guys,
first a quick questions: who knows what does "being mean to someone" mean in khmer?
My girlfriend and me couldn't find any translation yet!
Second thing is:
So I have been together with my girlfriend for a while and have a couple of khmer mates.
It's been hard the last weeks to find something that makes the "wow" effect, where did you learn that, how do you know that,...
To give an overview of my knowledge (I will write in English transcript, on the Laptop I am lazy to write khmer)
Khnyom <=> Nhyom (I)
in a lot of words with letter 'r' and leave several vowels / consonants out) put the r away like:
brab <=> Peap (tell)
srey <=> sey (woman)
srin <=> sin (original / virgin)
Somraam <=> S'heam (leave the om as well) (trash, rubbish, garbage)
Gonhjok <=> Gjok (mirror)
Gondrai <=> G'dreay (scissor)
...
Stuff like that.
"Ah", "K", "Mi" in front of names when playing around or being angry.
Sok Sabay <=> Say Sabok
Ce, kapelo,... <=> P*ssy
If you eat something and it is very delicious:
See / hop / Nham min gaert = Can't eat it
And with the right tone they get the sarcasm

So stuff like that. Right now I can't really think of more?
I hope there will be some more phrases / words me!

Have a good Saturday everyone :pissed: :cheers2: :felger:

Just typed it into my dictionary and it says "hurt them".
I suppose your translation is correct and also I heard actually but didn't know the meaning.
Thanks for that!
Your Khmer seems pretty decent!

OP,

About the r, I think you are confusing 'slang' with Khmer.

Pbrab means to tell, but if you talk politely, the r is pronounced. If you turn it to 'peab' you use a slang word. it's the same with pram (five) which becomes 'peam' or somraam (rubbish) becoming 'somream' or even shorter.

If the r is used in the middle of a longer word, it's often written, but not pronounced, but in your examples it seems different. For instance the Khmer word 'thank you' is written with a r in the middle which is not pronounced.
