(Notifying Stephen G. Brown, Wyang, Octahedron80): : Hi. The word is not in Sealang dictionary. Does the -r final exist in Khmer? How should it be respelled? --Anatoli T. (обсудить/вклад) 04:06, 14 March 2018 (UTC)

This is one of two ways to spell it. បឺរ (bəə) and ប៊័រ (bəə) are both correct, and both are pronounced the same way. The -r final does not exist in Khmer, unless someone is deliberately trying to use the French pronunciation for some reason. The pronunciation of both spellings should be /bəə/. —Stephen (Talk) 06:26, 14 March 2018 (UTC)
(Notifying Stephen G. Brown, Wyang, Octahedron80): : Thanks, Stephen, I have respelled both as ប៊ើ (bəə) - ប + ៊ + ើ. (bɑɑ) is a 1st class (a-series) consonant, is the vowel to give /əə/ but for o-series, converts a-series consonants to o-series. --Anatoli T. (обсудить/вклад) 23:51, 14 March 2018 (UTC)
