Although English is fast becoming Cambodia’s second language, the Khmer still cling to the Francophone pronunciation of the Roman alphabet and most foreign words. This is helpful to remember when spelling Western words and names aloud – ‘ay-bee-see’ becomes ‘ah-bey-sey’, and so on. French speakers will have an advantage when addressing the older generation, as most educated Khmers studied French at some point during their schooling. Many household items, medical and technical terms retain their French names as well, especially those which were introduced to Cambodia by the French during the colonial period, such as robinet (tap/faucet) and ampoule (light bulb).
