The Shiyeyi - English dictionary is the very first dictionary of its kind
on the language. It goes farther than the existing glossaries of the
language in that, in addition to giving translation equivalents of several
entries, it also provides the user with a pronunciation guide,
explanations, examples showing the context in which words are used, as well
as grammatical information. Its readership includes without distinction
native speakers, foreigners and language learners of different age groups.

Shiyeyi is an endangered Bantu language spoken in the North of Botswana and
in the Caprivi strip in the North-west of Namibia. The book is based on
real data collected from native speakers from different Wayeyi villages and
therefore contains alternative forms used by speakers from the entire
Wayeyi domain. It is authored by an experienced Bantuist who is advantaged
by the knowledge of several Bantu languages and counts a number of
publications on both Shiyeyi and other Bantu languages.

Linguistic Field(s): Lexicography
