PronunciationEdit

Orthographic and Phonemic
t
WT romanisation tɑɑ
(standard) IPA(key) /tɑː/

LetterEdit

ត, ្ត (tɑɑ)

  1. sixteenth letter of the Cambodian alphabet

Usage notesEdit

  • ្ដ from (dɑɑ) (ដ្ដ) is homographic to ្ត from (tɑɑ) (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.
  • This letter belongs to the Khmer a-series consonants
