The Kapauku dialects of this dictionary are spoken by approximately 35,000 people calling themselves Me, and their language Me Mana, in the Wisselmeren area in the extreme western section of the Nassau Mountains of Netherlands New Guinea. This dictionary contains approximately 2000 Kapauku root words, with some idioms and deriva tives. The author is engaged in work with the language and Bible translation under the Christian and Missionary Alliance, having lived at the government and mission headquarters village of Enarotali for nine years. Parts of speech are identified as folIows: Verbs end in -ei, -ou, -ii, or -ai.-ai verbs are followed by either -i or -a, which indicates the first stern. The first stern thus supplied, the verbs may be inflected according to the rules of inflection of Kapauku verbs, as described in 1 the grammar. False verbs are followed by the inflectible auxiliary tai, kai, gai, or more infrequently, pai or atii. Postpositives are indicated with 'pp' following and the rest are substantives or attributives accord ing to their use. Syllables with an accent mark have a higher pitch. Long vowels and diphthongs have word stress and glide down unless marked high. Dialect differences between Lakes Paniai and Tigi are indicated where known with (P) or (T) following. An infrequent (E) indicates the dialect east of Enarotali. To avoid confusion the (E) initial i8 retained in the Malay and Dutch sections.

This introduction to the descriptive and historical linguistics of the Papuan languages of New Guinea provide an accessible account of one of the richest and most diverse linguistic situations in the world. The Papuan languages number over 700 (or 20 per cent of the world's total) in more than sixty language families. Less than a quarter of the individual languages have yet been adequately documented, and in this sense William Foley's book might be considered premature. However, in the search for language universals and generalisations in linguistic typology, it would be foolhardy to neglect the information that is available. In this respect alone, the present volume, systematically organised on mainly typology principles, is particularly timely and useful. In addition, the processes of linguistic diffusion are present in New Guinea to an extent probably paralleled elsewhere on the globe. The Papuan Languages of New Guinea will be of interest not only to general and comparative linguists and to typologists, but also to sociolinguists and anthropologists for the information it provides on the social dynamics of language content.

"Farhadian provides the first major study of a highland Papuan group in an urban context, which distinguishes it from the typical highland Melanesian ethnography. Incorporating cultural and structural approaches, the book affords a fascinating look into the complex relationship among Christianity, Islam, nation making, and indigenous traditions. Based on research over many years, Christianity, Islam, and Nationalism in Indonesia offers an abundance of new material on religious and political events in West Papua. The book underlines the heart of Christian-Muslim rivalries, illuminating the fate of religion in late-modern times."--BOOK JACKET.
