NHAHEUN - FRENCH - ENGLISH LEXICON
Michel Ferlus 

Edited and Annotated by 
Pascale Jacq and Paul Sidwell, University of Melbourne

The present volume is a lexicon of Nhaheun, with glosses in French and
English, and etymological commentary in English. There are more than
1500 entries. In total there are 160 pages, including introduction,
transcription guide and semantic index. Nhaheun is a West Bahnaric
language, and Bahnaric itself is a branch of Mon-Khmer. Nhaheun is
presently spoken by plantation farmers on the Boloven Plateau in the
south of the Lao PDR. Materials for the lexicon were collected in the
1960s and 70s, but until now have not appeared in a consolidated
listing. To our knowledge existing published sources are not as
extensive as this list. Nhaheun is phonologically divergent among West
Bahnaric languages, in particular showing consonant lenitions which are
not shared by its close relatives. Also Nhaheun is under strong Lao
influence. The lexicon is intended as a useful reference and data source
for comparative linguistics. The latter is especially strengthened by
the inclusion of extensive etymological commentary by the editors, who
are specialists in Bahnaric historical phonology and lexicography.

SAPUAN (SAPUAR)
Pascale Jacq & Paul Sidwell, Australian National University

Sapuan (autonym Sapuar) is an endangered West Bahnaric (Mon-Khmer)
language spoken by the population of a single village, Ban Sapuan,
about 40 kms north of Attapeu (Lao PDR). Other than a short wordlist
collected early this century, no other descriptions of Sapuan are
known. The present sketch grammar is prepared on the basis of the
authors' recent fieldwork. Sapuan phonology and syntax are discussed
and short glossed texts and a lexicon are provided. The work is
illustrated with a map of the South Bahnaric area and some line
drawings of village scenes.
