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.
This is the best and most complete Cambodian-English dictionary published. It would be nice if it were released again, there is a need for a work this comprehensive in scope.
Khmer is the official language of Cambodia and is spoken by over 85% of the population. The two most important dialects, Standard and Phnom Penh, are both represented int his course. Romanization is used throughout Volume 1 but Khmer script is used exclusively in Volume 2.
This is the first English-Khmer (Cambodian) dictionary to be published in the Western world. It contains some 40,000 English entries and subentries and their translations. The primary objective of the dictionary is to provide a corpus of basic words and phrases which it would be useful for Western students of Khmer to know how to say or write in standard Khmer.
This volume consists of four parts: (1) The Cambodian Writing System, a formal description of the relationship between the writing system and the phonology of the language; (2) Programmed Reading Exercises, a series of highly structured reading drills to train the student to read all regular Cambodian word shapes; (3) Beginning Cambodian Reader, fifty reading selections, graded in length and difficulty, ranging from short, simple narratives to essays on various aspects of Cambodian culture; and (4) Cambodian-English Glossary, containing some 2,000 words.
The purpose of this course is to provide practice in aural comprehension and transcription of relatively difficult Cambodian material. It is expected that candidates for this course have successfully completed a basic Cambodian course, specifically the Dunwoody Press Cambodian Intensive Basic Course, and have had some additional experience in listening to and using the spoken language. The course begins with fairly easy material and progresses to Level 3 and 3+ material.
