Etymology[edit]

The basic meaning is “grouping” or “gathering together”, as seen in its derivatives. Compare Khmer កំពែង (kâmpêng, fortress wall, rampart; fence, stone wall; fortress, fortification; precinct, enclosure), which is from Old Khmer kaṃveṅ (enclosing wall, rampart), as well as Khmer កំពង់ (kâmpông, port, landing; river town; waterfront), which is from Old Khmer kaṃvaṅ (shelving ground: shallow place (in a river), shoal; beach, bank, shore; crossing place, ford; landing place, landing, wharf; river port; that which rises or is high; one who is tall or big-bellied). Also compare Thai กำแพง (gam-pɛɛng, wall (surrounding a town, a temple)), Lao ກຳແພງ (kam phǣng, wall of a city, rampart).
