Contemporary Cambodian Glossary

The Contemporary Cambodian Glossary, contains approximately 8.000 Cambodian entries in the first section and approximately 7,500 English entries in the second. The Cambodian entries bring together in a single volume all of the entries in the glossaries appearing at the end of the preceding volumes. The English entries come exclusively from glasses in the Cambodian section. The disparity in numbers arises out of the fact that some of the Cambodian entries have no one-word equivalents in English.

Contemporary Cambodian - Grammatical Sketch

This is the first of seven interrelated volumes comprising Contemporary Cambodian.. The other six will be Introductory Lessons, four topic-oriented textbooks, and a comprehensive Cambodian-English English-Cambodian glossary. It is appropriate that this volume bearing the subtitle Grammatical Sketch should be the first module to appear since all the others are to be cross-referenced to it. Contemporary Cambodian, of which the Grammatical Sketch is a central part, is not projected as a series. The topic-oriented modules are to be co-equal elements in an array of materials from which the course director can choose according to the interests of his students.

Khmer or Cambodian more formally is the language of the Khmer people and the official language of Cambodia. With approximately 16 million speakers, it is the second most widely spoken Austroasiatic language (after Vietnamese). Khmer has been considerably influenced by Sanskrit and Pali, especially in the royal and religious registers, through the vehicles of Hinduism and Buddhism. It is also the earliest recorded and earliest written language of the MonKhmer family, predating Mon and by a significant margin Vietnamese. The Khmer language has influenced, and has been influenced by, Thai, Lao, Vietnamese, Chinese and Cham, all of which, due to geographical proximity and long-term cultural contact, form a sprachbund in peninsular Southeast Asia.

Cambodian is spoken in: Cambodia
