Interlinked Corpus — Khmer

This page contains texts from the worksheets from the Communicative Functions and selected recordings from the SEA Illustrations projects. Over time, I'm planning to bring all published recordings into the corpus.

All texts are parsed and linked to a dictionary. Upon hovering over a word the translation appears, and upon clicking a new page with other usage examples for that particular word opens.
