Khmer vowels 18: reahmukh

The sign 'reahmukh' (រះមុខ) consists of two small circles written to the right of a consonant or dependent vowel. It is technically a diacritic but it works the same way as a dependent vowel. It changes the vowel sound and adds a final 'h' sound.

It is found in many common words such as នេះ (neh - this) and នោះ (nuh - that).
