They end up chatting; they guy calls regularly, sometimes a few times a day; they meet up finally and end up married.

In a disyllabic word a major syllable is preceded by a minor unstressed 'half-syllable'.
The range of vowels of the minor syllable is severely restricted.
There is no complete agreement about the Khmer vowel system, a tentative description is the following: (21): Khmer labial and dental stops exhibit a three-way contrast between voiceless unaspirated, voiceless aspirated and voiced.
In contrast, the palatal affricates and velar stops contrast only between voiceless unaspirated and aspirated.
The guy calls their phone number, knowing full well it is a "wrong number" (they ask for someone who is not associated with the number).
"The jurisdiction of the tribunal is such that the senior leaders and those most responsible can be put on trial," said William Smith, an Australian prosecutor at the court in the Cambodian capital Phnom Penh. "We wouldn't have put the cases forward to the judges if we didn't believe we couldn't prove them beyond reasonable doubt." But seven years after five of the top Khmer Rouge leadership were formally charged by the tribunal, only one has been convicted: prison chief Duch, who ran Phnom Penh's infamous S-21 camp where around 17,000 people were tortured before being killed, was sentenced to 35 years in 2010 for crimes against humanity.
Of the others, one has died, the prosecution of another was abandoned on medical grounds, and only two are still in the process of being tried.
