Title Review

The Great Andamanese language is said to be one of the very old languages of the world. However, it is on the brink of extinction. It is in this background that the multilingual dictionary has been published. The dictionary documents the rapidly perishing language.

The dictionary provides thorough and systematic language documentation to give invaluable insight into the ancient cognitive world of the Great Andamanese people. The conceptual structures that are embedded in lexical items reflect the collective mental representation of ideas and objects by members of the speech community. The grammatical structures of the language are unique and these are presented. The Dictionary presents the current form of the language, a kione, relying on the four Great Andamanese languages, two of which, Khora and Bo, have recently become extinct. The painstaking research features numerous words used in the language for a variety of things including natural phenomena. The scientific names are presented along with the Latin names in an appendix.

The Dictionary comes complete with a meticulously designed CD-ROM of the dictionary backed by original sound recordings of Great Andamanese speakers. The sounds have been recorded in natural surroundings. It also has coloured pictures of various items from the Great Andamanese life.

Anvita Abbi is Prof. of Linguistics at the Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi. She is a distinguished researcher in languages of the Indian subcontinent.
