Cambodian-English Glossary by Franklin E. Huffman and Im Proum

This work is reissued as an aid not only to students of the Cambodian language but also to Cambodians residing in English-speaking countries. The glossary includes some 10,000 words, with definitions that are useful and complete at a general level, beyond the specific context of the published readings that the glossary was originally designed to accompany. Although less comprehensive than a dictionary, it fills an important purpose as an inexpensive aid for speakers of either language.

Many of these foreigners or 'chun bor-tay' speak English as a first or second language, but know little of written or spoken Khmer.
