This is a working list of Khmer words that mean the same thing but have multiple spellings.  We want to standardize the spellings to be used in the Khmer grammar checker so that books and publications will only use one spelling rather than multiple spellings consistently.  We need your help to add more alternate spellings to this list!  If you have any alternate spellings, please post them in the comments and we will include them on the main page.  One way to tell what word should be used is by searching for each term in Google and using the one that has the most uses.  Currently we do our best to follow Chuon Nath’s spelling (not always the head-word, but the spelling used within the dictionary).  Our list is currently being used in the LanguageTool grammar checker, so your document will use consistent spellings.
