Dai Lue-English Dictionary

Dai Lue-English Dictionary Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This pioneering dictionary focuses primarily on the dialect of Dai Lue spoken in Sipsong Panna, China, but also notes differences with the Dai Lue dialect in Thailand. Containing more than 13,000 Dai Lue entries, the dictionary provides a phonetic pronunciation guide and complete English definition for each word, as well as the part of speech, classifiers, and spelling variants. Helpful usage examples of the word in context are all accompanied by English translation. An index of English terms keyed to the Dai Lue entries follows the dictionary proper. A bilingual English/Thai introduction to the Dai Lue language is included. Extensive appendixes provide lists of Dai Lue classifiers, pronouns, onomatopoetic words, final particles, geopolitical terms, color terms, and a frequency list of 150 of the most commonly used words.

The dictionary is an essential reference for both learners of Dai Lue and for Dai Lue speakers who are interested in their own language or in learning English. It will prove invaluable for Tai scholars as well as linguists interested in Asian languages.

William J. Hanna has taught linguistics at Mahidol University in Bangkok and Payap University in Chiang Mai for thirty years.
