A Nembe-English Dictionary. Occasional Publication No. 2.
The author, of Reclamation House in Okpoma Brass, Nigeria, has attempted to "arrange Nembe words in an alphabetical order to form the basis of a dictionary." The introductory section of this two-volume dictionary presents a short description of the phonological and morphological features of Nembe, as well as a guide to the pronunciation of the vowels and consonants. Notes on tone marking, word division, and the abbreviations used are also included. Entries are followed by an indication of their grammatical category, and their glosses in English. Variations in usage and occasional collocations where necessary are also given. The author presents this work as a preliminary edition and welcomes suggestions for revision. (AMM)
