Published in 1934, this was the first Visayan-English dictionary. It contains more than 18,000 words of the Hiligáynon and Hiniráya dialects as spoken in and around Iloilo, besides many Spanish words, which, being frequently used by the Visayans, have become part of the Visayan language. Collated by the REV. J. KAUFMANN, M.H.M, parish priest of Igbarás, Iloilo, Philippines.

Today, this dictionary remains one of the best Visayan-English Dictionaries; and is useful to both English students of Visayan, and also Visayan native speakers who require a dictionary of their own language with definitions in English. This work contains not merely a definition of the meaning of each Visayan term, but also English equivalents in abundance. It has been thought better, in translating the Visayan sentences, not to depart too far from the literal meaning; nevertheless English words and phrases have been introduced, which will prove most useful to Visayan students of English.

Review Text

  • By hands-on teacher on August 22, 2017

    Because of when this dictionary was officially published, it gave me hope before I bought it. I lived in Negros Occidental for two years as a missionary and learned the Hiligaynon language. I wish that I had this dictionary with me during my time over there. I am very impressed with this dictionary. I must say, I bought the Webster's Hiligaynon dictionary about two years ago and it has many mistakes and does not even compare to this John Kaufmann Visayan-English Dictionary. This dictionary in particular that I bought was used, but it was in good condition and I'm glad that it was not marked up yet so that I could do my own personal markings on it. The only thing that goes against it being used was that the cover has a permanent slight bend to it, but that isn't important.
