  abstract = {I. Introduction The syntactic parallelism between Thai and Cambodian is striking. Not only is the order and inventory of individual form classes almost identical, but also many semantically equivalent forms seem to share identical ranges of syntactic occurrence. Given syntactic similarity of such range and magnitude, there are three possible explanations: 1) Genetic relationship. In spite of their syntactic similarity, Thai and Cambodian are not, so far as has been demonstrated by traditional methods of comparative reconstruction, genetically related. 2) Coincidence. When one considers the number of different syntactic relations occurring in the same order in the two languages, the probability of change convergence is infinitesimal. 3) Borrowing. The increasing evidence for the existence of a Southeast Asian linguistic area, along with the close geographic, cultural, and political contact between Thai and Cambodia over a period of seven centuries, strongly indicates that the syntactic similarity is due to borrowing. II. Comparison of Thai and Cambodian Syntax This section of the paper presents a systematic examination of the degree of syntactic similarity between Thai and Cambodian. III. Direction of Borrowing This section concludes that, based on both synchronic and diachronic evidence, Cambodian syntax has been strongly influenced by Thai, and that we do in fact have an example of extensive borrowing over genetic boundaries.},
