A Study of the Aklanon Dialect, Volume Two: Dictionary (of Root Words and Derivations), Aklanon to English.
Salas Reyes, Vicente; And Others
This Aklanon-English dictionary consists of a list of basic root words or word bases of Aklanon. The dictionary is designed to be used both by native speakers of Aklanon and by foreign learners. For the former, it can serve to: (1) establish a uniform system of spelling, (2) broaden or intensify the use and understanding of idiomatic standard American English, (3) serve as a reference book for the standard speech of Kalibo, (4) broaden the vocabulary of those interested in studying their native language, and (5) introduce a more linguistically oriented study of Aklanon. For foreign learners, it is useful as a language learning tool. The dictionary is preceded by a discussion of root words and their derivations, an outline of the six basic grammatical functions and the basic parts of speech of Aklanon, a discussion of morphophonemic change, and an explanation of the conventions for spelling the Aklanon dialect. A short bibliography of relevant references follows the dictionary. (CLK)
