Khmer is the language of the Khmer people and the official language of Cambodia. It is the second most widely spoken. Khmer is spoken by some 13 million people in Cambodia, where it is the official language. It is also a second language for most of the minority groups and indigenous hill tribes there. Additionally there are a million speakers of Khmer native to southern Vietnam (1999) and 1.4 million in northeast Thailand (2006). Khmer dialects, although mutually intelligible, sometimes quite marked. Notable variations are found in speakers from Phnom Penh (which is the capital city), the rural Battambang area, and the areas of Northeast Thailand adjacent to Cambodia such as Surin province, Cardamom Mountains, and in southern Vietnam. The dialects form continuum running roughly north to south. Standard Cambodian Khmer is mutually intelligible with others but a Khmer Krom speaker from Vietnam; for instance, have great difficulty communicating with a Khmer native to Sisaket Province in Thailand. Khmer is a member of the Austroasiatic language family, the most archaic family in an area that stretches from Malay Peninsula through Southeast Asia to East India.
