Written By: DavidW.Fleck
Series Title: Languages of the World /Dictionaries 52

Animales y plantas del pueblo kakataibo es un diccionario etnobiológico trilingüe (kakataibo-castellano-inglés), que incluye identificaciones biológicas, nombres en castellano regional y definiciones etnobiológicas. El diccionario ha sido producido siguiendo una metodología innovadora, basada en una estrecha colaboración entre hablantes de kakataibo, lingüistas y biólogos y ofrece un índice alfabético español-kakataibo y una clasificación semántica de todas las entradas. El libro es el resultado de dos años de trabajo colaborativo y durante este tiempo un equipo de investigación interdisciplinario e intercultural ha documentado el conocimiento etnobiológico del pueblo kakataibo, tal como se expresa en diferentes géneros discursivos (desde narrativas tradicionales hasta recetas médicas ), y ha desarrollado una base de datos léxica muy detallada a partir de la cual se ha producido este diccionario. Con más de 1.250 entradas, Animales y plantas del pueblo kakataibo constituye el esfuerzo más ambicioso para documentar el léxico etnobiológico de la lengua kakataibo y es tal vez uno de los diccionarios etnobiológicos más detallados disponibles para cualquier lengua amazónica.

Animales y plantas del pueblo kakataibo is a trilingual (Kakataibo-Spanish-English) ethnobiological dictionary, which includes biological identifications, Regional Spanish names and ethnobiological definitions produced following an innovative methodology, based on a close collaboration between Kakataibo speakers, linguists and biologists. The dictionary also includes a Spanish-Kakataibo alphabetic index and a semantic classification of all the entries, based on biological taxonomy. The book is the result of two years of collaborative work and, during this time, an interdisciplinar and intercultural research team has documented the ethnobiological knowledge of the Kakataibo people, manifested in different discourse genres (from traditional narratives to medical recipies) and has developed a very detailed lexical database from which this dictionary has been produced. With more than 1250 entries, Animales y plantas del pueblo kakataibo constitutes the most ambicious effort for documenting the ethnobiological lexicon of the Kakataibo language and is perhaps one of the largest ethnobiological dictionaries available for any other Amazonian language.
