A MARANAO DICTIONARY.
MACARAYA, BATUA A.; MCKAUGHAN, HOWARD P.
MARANAO, OF THE MALAYO-POLYNESIAN LANGUAGE GROUP, IS ONE OF THE EIGHT MAJOR LANGUAGES IN THE PHILIPPINES AND IS SPOKEN BY 400,000 MOSLEMS ON THE ISLAND OF MINDANAO. THIS DICTIONARY, BASED PRIMARILY ON THE SPOKEN FORM OF THE LANGUAGE, CONTAINS 18,000 MARANAO ENTRIES IN PART I AND THEIR ALPHABETIZED ENGLISH GLOSSES CROSS-REFERENCED IN PART II. THE INTRODUCTION INCLUDES A SKETCH OF MARANAO GRAMMAR TO AID THE READER IN IDENTIFYING BASE FORMS (USED FOR THE ENTRIES) AND A RATHER EXTENSIVE BIBLIOGRAPHY. A SPECIAL FEATURE IS THE ENTRY OF SOME 700 POPULAR MARANAO PLANT NAMES AND THEIR SCIENTIFIC EQUIVALENTS. THIS DICTIONARY WAS PRODUCED ON THE IBM 7040 AND 1401 AND HAS BEEN REPRODUCED FROM THE COMPUTER PRINT-OUT. IT IS AVAILABLE FROM THE UNIVERSITY OF HAWAII PRESS, HONOLULU, FOR $15.00. (AM)
