|About the Chuon Nath 1966 Khmer Dictioanary|
|Chuon Nath's Dictionary of the Cambodian Language was first published by the Buddhist Institute in Phnom Penh in 1938, and most recently published in a fifth edition in 1966. For almost a century been the ultimate reference for the Cambodian language.|
|More than a dictionary, Chuon 1966 is a powerful statement regarding language growth and development via classical compounding and derivation, rather than by simple nativization of modern loanwords.|
Nearly lost during the Khmer Rouge years -- the Buddhist Institute library
did not even own a copy of the dictionary when we began this projct --
the Chuoa Nath dictionary is now being revised and extended by the B.I.
