Choom Reeup Sua,
Another week has passed and many more words have been used. This week I picked a new Khmer word for me, that ties two words I already know together. As the end of 2016 comes to a close, I always think some reflection on what we know can help us see something new!
Part of Speech: Adjective
Definition: Sweet and Sour (can insert meat of choice here, my favorite is chicken)
All the LCC pastors were in town this week, so we went to lunch and I took the opportunity to learn some new food names. One I really liked, and asked how to order in the future was Chah Choo-aim Sak Moh-ahn. Which means Fried Sweet and Sour Chicken. This may not seem SUPER exciting to you, but wait, there is more! The word for sweet and sour is a combination of the words for sour (Choo) and sweet (P’aim.) Yes, English obviously does this in its own way, but making connections in a new language is more fun! I hope your New Year’s Eve and first days of 2017 are more sweet than sour, and filled with wondrous words!
