Book Description Ashgate Publishing Limited, UK, 1980. Softcover. Book Condition: Fine. First Edition. 615 pages. Foredges are very lightly marked.This dictionary provides a standard work of reference for the southern African language of Mbukushu. The approach to this work is unique, working from English to Mbukushu the author first of all gives precision to his English concept, and then seeks the most appropriate Mbukushu word, which he illustrates in one or more Mbukushu sentences. The disctionat is based on some 8000 English entries, for which the Concise Oxford Dictionary has provided a guide, selectively used. The three column format employed for the dictionary is a distinctive and original feature. Throughout the work there is a thourough cross-referencing of multiple meanings of Mbukushu words and of English words in the same sematic clusters. There is a full treatment of verbal extensions and their roots. The English-Mbukushu dictionary includes extensive introductory material, with tables of noun classes, concordance tables, a table of verb forms, and two tables of verbal extensions.
