This is a dictionary of Cebuano Visayan, the language of the central part of the Philippines and much of Mindanao. Although the explanations are given in English, the aim of this work is not to provide English equivalents but to explain Cebuano forms in terms of themselves. It is meant as a reference work for Cebuano speakers and as a tool for students of the Cebuano language. There is a total of some 25,000 entries and an addenda of 700 forms which were prepared after the dictionary had been composed. This dictionary is the product of eleven years work by more than a hundred persons. The work was edited by John Wolff but the sources are entirely native, and all illustrations are composed by native speakers. To date, this work probably represents the most authoritative dictionary of the Cebuano Visayan language.
This collection of essays has two purposes: first to give the advanced student of Amharic a sample of the Amharic writing style and secondly to provide information on Ethiopia's cultural background. The texts were written by several Ethiopian university students some 40 years ago on subjects with which they were most familiar such as naming, christening, wedding, burial ceremony, food and drink, the manner of wearing clothes, house construction in Amhara country, daily work of an Ethiopian woman, landholding disputes, beauty, merchant, mercato, country market, artisans, elderhood, priests, dabtara, monkhood, divination, Christmas, Easter, Addis Ababa, the City of Gondar, Harar City etc. Although some time has passed since the collection was compiled the texts convey a good picture of Ethiopian culture. Each Amharic text is given an English translation on the opposite side. The book is completed by an Amharic-English Dictionary of nearly 90 pages and an index of English words and Amharic lexemes.
