The Khmer writing system is one the the most interesting writing systems that I've come across, because of it's dependent and independent vowel symbols. Khmer from what I have read is easier to learn than the Thai writing system, which is a language system like Lao that are derived from Khmer. Does anyone here have in depth knowledge of the writing system. There appears to be a writing stroke order like Chinese, Japanese, and Korean from the hand writing samples that I have looked at. Vietnamese is the only language that does not derive it's letters from Khmer, instead you have a strange form of the Latin alphabet. Burmese is a alphabet system that is within an entirely different grouping of languages.
