Title: 彝汉英常用词词汇 (Nuosu Yi - Chinese - English Glossary)
Edited By: Dennis Elton Walters 王丹宁
Susan Gary Walters 苏珊
Linying Ma
Description:

This is a three-language glossary of the standardized form of Yi language,
as spoken by about two million people, mostly in southern Sichuan province
in China. The main glossary includes approximately 6,600 entries. Each main
entry uses standard Nuosu Yi characters, the standard romanized form, and
IPA equivalents for the vernacular words. Entry contents include part of
speech and gloss or definition in both Chinese and English, and references
to antonyms and conversives. Three and four-syllable variant forms are
included as subentries. Supplemental materials include Nuosu Yi syllable
lists sorted both in standard Nuosu order and in English order, a
Chinese-Yi index, an English-Yi index, radical and stroke lookup index for
finding unrecognized Yi characters, and a standard table of Yi characters
with page number references to the main glossary. Each book includes a CD
with an HTML version of the glossary that can be used in a web browser on
any personal computer. Required fonts are included on the CD.

The book is a cooperative publication project between SIL International and
the Southwest University for Nationalities in Chengdu.
