  • Description

The MODERN HAUSA-ENGLISH DICTIONARY was compiled by the staff of the Centre for the study of Nigerian Languages, Bayero University College, Kano. It is a practical dictionary designed to be used by Nigerian secondary and post-secondary school students. For those whose mother tongue is Hausa, this dictionary provides an invaluable work of reference on correct orthography and standard usage.

An important feature is the inclusion and standardization of many of the most recent loanwords in Hausa. It will also prove an indispensable reference work for Hausa speakers studying English. For the student of Hausa as a second or foreign language, this dictionary is the first to provide an accurate guide to the pronunciation of every Hausa word. The dictionary contains many illustrative examples. Several useful appendices are included as well as a guide to the use of the Dictionary.
