Khmer vowels 13: sra ae

The thirteenth Khmer dependent vowel is called 'sra ae' and it is placed to the left of the consonant that it attaches to. It is officially romanised as 'ae' before an A-series consonant and 'eae' before an O-series consonant although in practice you may see it written in many ways. Often for simplicity it is just romanised as 'e'.

It is found in many common words such as ពែង (peaeng - cup) and គ្រែ (kreae - bed).
