The dictionary of Binukid, a language spoken in the Bukidnon province of the Philippines, is intended as a tool for students of Binukid and for native Binukid-speakers interested in learning English. A single dialect was chosen for this work. The dictionary is introduced by notes on Binukid grammar, including basic information about phonology and transcription, morphophonemic and dialectic alternations, morphology, marking particles, pronouns, and verbs. Entries follow in alphabetical order, each containing the word's form, grammatical category, meaning, and one or more illustrative sentences in both Binukid and English. An English-Binukid index and word lists for flora, fauna, hunting and agricultural equipment, weapons, and some household items are appended. (MSE)
