English-Cinyanja Dictionary.
Zambesi Mission, Mitsidi (Malawi).
This English-Chinyanja (Cinyanja) dictionary was prepared and published by the Zambesi Mission for use in Africa. Compilers of this volume were aided by Africans of Southern Angoniland and a Yao tribesman from the Blantyre district knowledgeable in Chinyanja. Spelling rules used are those of the United Translation Board, which has adopted Chinyanja as the dialect most widely spoken in Malawi. Special attention has been given to aspiration. Entries indicate the grammatical category of each word, followed by glosses and variations in usage. Brief notes on the alphabet, vowels, and parts of speech are contained in the Introduction. (AMM)
The Superintendent, Zambesi Mission, Mitsidi, Blantyre, Malawi. Also available from other Zambesi Missions in Malawi (Chiole, Ntonda, Dombole, and Muluma)
