  • Re. “ខ្ញុំ​ចំណាស់ should be ខ្ញុំ​រាង​ចំណាស់” you’ve listed above. I believe both phrases are grammatically wrong for a simple reason that it is a group of nouns without any adjective or verb. ខ្ញុំ ​(=me: noun &subject) រាង (=form: noun) ​ចំណាស់ (=oldness: noun). As in any langage, there should be a subject, a verb and an object. Therefore, it would be more correct to say a. “ខ្ញុំ​ចាស់” (me old => I am old) – the verb ‘to be’ is undertood ; or b. “ខ្ញុំ​មាន​ចំណាស់” (=me have oldness => I am old) ; or c. “ខ្ញុំ​រាង​ចាស់” (=me look old / me physic old => I am old) – the verb ‘to have’ for the second phrase (I have old physic) is understood. Definitely one cannot say “ខ្ញុំ​រាង​ចំណាស់” (=me look oldness) since “​ចំណាស់” is a noun. Hope this is helpful. Cheers
