All scholar say that the central culture develop of Khmer was in Lupuri, which base of the so much evidence included the stone inscription, show me which part of it say Khorm? So then why western scholar give so credit to the Khmer not Khorm? what their really benefit? You mean those scholar is betraying the world understanding? what for?? for honor Khmer people??
Note: for Thai the word Khorm is Ancient Thai (Siam)
For Khmer it just one of the words that call Khmer in the ancient time, but not many people know about the word Khorm is existed.
If you can read Thai, you can search "ขอมสบาดโขลญลำพง Khom Sabad". It's the name of Khom ruler in Lavo who took his chance when the first Sukhothai king, Sri Naonamthom had died. Khom Sabad ruled Sukhothai for some time and he lost wars with Khun Bang Klang Hao (later King Sri Indraditaya) and Khun Pa Mueng (later Indravarman III).
After I have researched Thai, Khmer history. Now I really think Khom is Syam, Khom Lavo is Syam Lavo, the ancient native Siamese.
Now it's your turn, Give us some resource when the word Khmer really first founded in your stone inscriptions and what the context is all about. So we can help searching your true identity.
