Comments: Brao is spoken in an area of North-Eastern Cambodia and adjoining areas of Laos. Keller (1976) provides details of the pronunciation of the symbols used in a 'practical orthography' but no other information on the phonology. Sequences of two like vowels represent long vowels; all may appear long. Sequences of unlike vowels may be limited but the limits are not specified. Approximants may follow long vowels.
