The National Language Institute (NLI) at the Royal Academy of Cambodia (RAC) plans to publish a 2,200-page Angkorian Old Khmer dictionary during the first half of 2021.
The typeface that will be used for the words in this dictionary is the result of research that was done on ancient Khmer-language inscription stones from the ninth century to the 14th century.
NLI director Meakh Bora, who spearheaded the technical research task force that compiled this dictionary, told The Post on December 22 that they had been working on the project since 2005 and that they expect to complete the work by the end of this year.
“We can publish it next year. The task force to research and compile this dictionary is comprised of seven members. They all are part of the NLI working group,” he said.
