Never heard this word "khamoi" before. Maybe its been corrupted like Krabuea (it's actually krabey in Khmer).

Krabue กระบือ is from Khom, or in your definition 'Old Khmer'

It's original pronunciation which is deserved by Thais, unlike you modern khmer, you speak bastardized version. LOL

Same as Khmer, It pronounced Khamer /e/ sound by Khom, Thai also prounce same as Khom with /e/ sound but you khmer in Cambo pronouce /ae/ sound, and more bastarded by Khmer american, pronounce it as khmai. embarassedlaugh.gif

LOL, It's you idiot khamen trolling in Thai chat. This is what I call 'defensive/retaliate' mode.

If you can't handle Thais reaction, then just leave. embarassedlaugh.gif
