Homographs
  • ្ដ from (ដ្ដ) is identical to ្ត from (ត្ត), and is the cause of a great many misspellings. Many Cambodians do not distinguish between the two subscripts, and type either of them for both subscript letters. They consider that a single glyph does duty for both letters.

  1. resistance, struggle
  2. continuation, sequence
