About this Item

620 p. Includes bibliography. A thousand years of Cambodian epigraphy-from the 7th Century to the 15th-come to life in this handsome hardbound set. Prof. Jenner dissects every single word from more than 1, 100 inscriptions, tracing etymologies back to Sanskrit and Pali and forward to modern Khmer and Thai. Jenner draws on a century of French and Cambodian scholarship-never translated into English-as well as his own authoritative translation of the Old Khmer texts to produce an unparalleled reference to the complete corpus of Cambodian inscriptions. This pre-Angkorian dictionary, reflecting the author's orientation on linguistics, is the radical revision of a preliminary edition intended for limited distribution issued twenty-five years ago. It benefits from close grammatical descriptions of each text, a much increased number of entries, and glosses improved with the passage of time. It is hoped that it will prove a tool useful to scholars and students wishing to understand the meaning and structure of the texts of the period, including inscriptions which are still being uncovered. 0.0.
