The First English-Aromanian (Vlach) Dictionary: Profile and Samples.
Vrabie, Emil
This paper describes the organization and characteristics of Tache Papahagi's "Dictionarul dialectului aroman, general si etimologic" (DAA), a bilingual Aromanian (Vlach)-Romanian dictionary published in 1974. It also describes an ongoing project to produce an English-Aromanian dictionary based on the DAA, which should serve as a lexico-semantic tool for researchers who need to approach Aromanian semasiologically. Polysemantic English words are provided with adequate restrictions that define or suggest the meaning of the Aromanian equivalent. English phrasal units with their Aromanian equivalents are entered alphabetically, and English homographs are treated as separate words. English idioms and other bound expressions are included whenever suitable equivalents can be identified. Seven pages of sample English-Aromanian entries are included. (MDM)
