Abstract 

The following rapid appraisal survey of Kuy dialects in Cambodia took place during March 2002. This research was conducted in order to gain a broad overview of the dialects and basic sociolinguistic factors among the Kuy. The primary methods of assessment included the comparison of nine wordlists and the review of responses in selected locations to a sociolinguistic questionnaire. The wordlists were evaluated on the basis of lexicostatistic analysis to determine the outlines of different speech varieties, while the sociolinguistic data was assessed to determine salient attitudes held among the Cambodian Kuy.
