Khmer Dictionary Developing

New Khmer Dictionary, developed by the Institute of National Language (INL) and was officially published in 2005, is being developed from Orthographic Dictionary (Spelling Dictionary of the Cambodian Language) to explanatory dictionary. It identifically follows the orthographic spelling in the Khmer Dictionary, generally known as Samdech Choun Nat Dictionary which published in its fifth edition in 1967.

The Institute of Natioanal Language, Royal Academy of Cambodia urgently needs the fund from any donation because we already have done on Khmer Language Programme and we have not enough to work on it; we should move forward to working on the other languages: the ethnic minority languages of Cambodia. However, we need immediately to unite the Khmer language first before we try to work on the other programme. In addition, without the Dictionary of Khmre publised by the Institute of Buddhist we could not expand our programme on the Dictionary of Orthographic Khmer language.
This is my view on Khmer language.
