A precious resource to any student of Khmer. 27 Mar. 2001
By Richard Arant - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Originally published in 1970, this 365 page guide to the Khmer writing system has it all -- Part I is a formal introduction to Khmer, somewhat loaded with the terminology of the professional linguist but not overdone in that regard. Part II consists of a well-designed series of programmed step-by-step exercises which will quickly put the Khmer writing system within the grasp of any serious student. Part III is a beginning reader, composed of short cursive script passages with accompanying vocabulary lists. Part IV is a 2,000 word glossary. All the Khmer script is in the same crystal clear cursive script, even more useful to students than the now-available Khmer laser fonts. Own this work along with Derik Tonkin's smaller format, almost pocketbook-size guide, and you are in business. An accompanying audiotape would have been a most valuable asset to complete the package. I had a Khmer friend in Site 2 make me such a tape years ago, and would recommend that approach.
