Title: Old Khmer Grammar
Written By: Philip Jenner
Paul James Sidwell
URL: http://pacling.anu.edu.au/catalogue/book_pages/600-plus/611.html
Description:

The Old Khmer Grammar has been brewed from a mass of memoranda and
citations accumulated over long years of teaching Old Khmer to a succession
of able graduate students. It is meant to serve the immediate needs of
readers embarking on the study of the inscriptions, and assumes that they
have some acquaintance with modern Khmer. Designed for easy reference, it
addresses the main points of grammar and style in the great majority of the
texts. A few matters of special interest not previously brought to public
notice are discussed in fair detail. Included are a bibliography designed
to assist students, and a lexicon of Old Khmer words occurring in the text.

It can be considered a companion volume to Prof. Jenner's A Dictionary of
pre-Angkorian Khmer and A Dictionary of Angkorian Khmer.
