The study of combinations is an important part of contributing to the development and preservation of Khmer literature to grow and survive forever, especially grammar, which is an important branch of Khmer literature. The combination method is a way to create words by putting all the elements in a row, and those elements still retain the original physical form completely without modification. This study on “Using combination methods for Khmer word formations” will allow our team to identify the rich and common word formation characteristics that lead to the analysis of each Khmer word. To achieve the above objectives, our team has used a qualitative approach to research on the subject, commenting, explaining, interpreting, and writing, as well as collecting existing scholars’ existing documents, previous versions and social media files, etc. to analyze common and unique points. Through the study or analysis of this data, we see that it originated from a combination of Khmer and Pali-Sanskrit combinations. In the Khmer combination method, there are two points, the first point is the word combination between word and word, this combination method has three other sub-points, the compound noun, the compound adjective, and the compound verb, and the second point is the word add the beginning, and the word add at the end of the word root. As for the Pali-Sanskrit combination method, there are four points: the subject at the beginning, the subject at the end, the subject that can be translated, and the subject beside the compound words. However, some points were found, such as the word treaty and non-treaty in Pali-Sanskrit compound words and conjunctive compound words. In addition, there are Khmer and Pali word combinations, Khmer and Sanskrit words, Pali and Sanskrit words, Pali and Pali words, and Sanskrit and Sanskrit words.
In conclusion, after studying the formation of Khmer words by this combination method, we have come to understand the characteristics of Khmer word formation by combining according to each characteristic, including the Khmer combination method, Pali combination method, and Sanskrit additional words. Additionally, there are conventions in Pali, Sanskrit, conjunctions, Khmer and Pali, Khmer and Sanskrit, Pali and Sanskrit, Pali and Pali, Sanskrit and Sanskrit better for further study. Therefore, this study aims to teach all learners how to build words by combining them in depth and the advantages of utilizing them in order to help address difficulties for the next generation of learners in terms of words used and preserve the national literature for future development.
