Abstract:

Buin is a Papuan language of southeast Bougainville, and the
manuscript of this dictionary was compiled by Don Laycok in the last
twenty years or so of this life. When he realised in 1988 that he was
terminally ill, he though about the things he wanted to achieve in the
months that remained to him. Academically, the most important was the
completion of his Buin dictionary, and he worked on this as far as his
strength allowed. In his final days he asked his colleagies in the
Department of Linguistics at the Research School of Pacific and Asian
Studies of the Australian National University to ensure its
publication.

This has taken longer than anyone might have foreseen, largely because
of the need for a suitable editor. In 1994 Masayuki Onishi completed
his PhD on the neighbouring language Motuna and volunteered to edit
the dictionary. This he has done, seeking to remain as true as
possible to Don's manuscript and Don's intentions, aided by Don'e wife
Tania and daughter Melany.
