A Composite Dictionary of Philippine Creole Spanish (PCS).
Riego de Rios, Maria Isabelita
Studies in Philippine Linguistics, v7 n2 1989
This dictionary is a composite of four Philippine Creole Spanish dialects: Cotabato Chabacano and variants spoken in Ternate, Cavite City, and Zamboanga City. The volume contains 6,542 main lexical entries with corresponding entries with contrasting data from the three other variants. A concluding section summarizes findings of the dialect study that led to the dictionary's writing. Appended materials include a 99-item bibliography and materials related to the structural analysis of the dialects. An index also contains three alphabetical word lists of the variants. The research underlying the dictionary's construction is seen as documentation of the validity of Cotabato Chabacano as a variant of the Philippine Creole Spanish. (MSE)
