Useful for both linguists and laymen because of its scientific validity and accuracy, the second edition of the Papago/Pima-English dictionary gives full definitions for over 5,000 entries. Beginning with a practical alphabet for Papago-Pima and a guide to the dictionary, the book is divided into two parts. In addition to the lexical entries, Part I (Papago/Pima-English) contains instructions and information regarding main entries, subentries, spelling, singular and plural forms, distributive forms, alternate forms, parts of speech labels, definitions, prefixes and suffixes, combining elements, parts of speech, taxonomic classifications of plants and animals, cross references, etymology, usage, and abbreviations and symbols. Part II (English-Papago/Pima) contains its own list of abbreviations and symbols in addition to the lexical entries. The dictionary contains appendices containing information on Papago/Pima phonology, time and calendar, cultural terms, kinship, maps and placenames, numbers, and pronunciation. The dictionary is believed to be the only published dictionary of the Papago/Pima language. (SB)
