EtymologyEdit

From Pali kamma (action; activity), probably via Old Khmer -កម្ម (-kamma, action, deed), probably with some input from Sanskrit कर्मन् (karman, action; activity); (Can this(+) etymology be sourced?) probably via Old Khmer -កម៌្ម (-karmma, action, deed). The regular derivative of the Sanskrit word is synonymous กรรม์ (gan).
