Help talk:IPA for Khmer
I've started the article. The values are based on Cambodian System of Reading and Writing by Huffman and the data published on SEALANG online Khmer dictionary.Supanorchey (talk) 00:52, 14 August 2010 (UTC)
I am taking attention to reducing the number of footnotes in some of these IPA for X pages. These pronunciation keys are designed primarily for readers wanting to understand the language-specific IPA transcriptions they encounter in Wikipedia articles. We shouldn't swamp them with irrelevant details. Because this information may still be pertinent to the project, I have duplicated the notes below rather than try to find a place for them. This is irrespective of whether I think these claims are true or whether they are sourced. I will leave it to other editors to move the information to the appropriate article space or check that it already is. — Æµ§œš¹ [ãːɱ ˈfɹ̠ˤʷɪ̃ə̃nlɪ] 00:23, 29 December 2011 (UTC)
