Reading in Somali: An Elementary Cultural Reader. Volume II: Pony and Glossary.
Pia, J. J.; Molitor, R. D.
A glossary and a set of translations are contained in this volume which is to be used with the authors'"Reading in Somali An Elementary Cultural Reader." Two types of translation are presented for each lesson; a literal translation and an English translation which presents the substance of the selection in standard English sentence patterns. The glossary combines the vocabulary from "Reading in Somali" and another volume "Beginning in Somali." Original glossaries were provided by the Somalis and then checked with Abraham's "Somali-English Dictionary" (London, 1962). Listing of items is done in accordance with the needs of the student who is not familiar with the etymological principals typical of the dictionaries of the Semitic languages. Only a minimum of grammatical information is provided. (WB)
