Khmero-Thai: The Great Change in History of the Thai Language in Chao Praya Basin by Wilaiwan Khanittanan

Vocabulary/language transference (as opposed to vocabulary-loans or invasion) is evidence of gradual absorption/swarming by the Tai as Michael Vickery has suggested ?

Thought this, attached, might interest you all.

Kind regards Bora Touch

Please read Ph.D thesis by Dr. Willaiwan Khanittanan here.

The thesis is very interesting. It covers in details the cognates and correlations between the Khmer and Thai languages. But above all, the thesis's focus was on the usage and the penetrations of Khmer vocabularies into the Thai language. I recommend everybody to read it. I'd also like to thank Mr. Bora Touch for providing this document.
