The Khmer language vocabulary is not only inherent in the Khmer language but is also characterized by the fact that it is composed of elements from other languages and gradually becomes an indispensable part of the language system in Khmer language. If the concept of Khmer is just the word available in the Khmer language at the newly formed stage, it will be difficult to see the change and development of the Khmer itself and not reflect the true nature of the Khmer language. In terms of origin, the SanscritPali words have been high-level Khmerized, so Khmer language users do not consider them as extrinsic words but native words - pure Khmer words.
