A Dictionary Of The Yoruba Language.

Canon C. W. Wakeman’s introduction to the first edition of this Dictionary records that the first Dictionary of the Yoruba language was published in the year 1843, compiles by Samuel (afterwards Bishop) Crowther. This was greatly altered and considerably enlarge for a new edition in 1852. For many years this book was standard work on the Yoruba language. The printing plates of the 1937 edition were destroyed in an air raid on Exeter early in the Second World War. Since then the Dictionary has been out of print. The Oxford University Press has agreed with the Church Missionary Society to meet the urgent demand for the book by printing the text photographically, in order to avoid the further delay that revision would involve.
A comprehensive reference material meant to solve the problems of meanings, usages and interpretation of words both in English and Yoruba languages.
Usage and classes of words are defined with lists of names of birds, plants and trees in the two languages. The botanical names given to the lists of plants, trees and birds are without any confusion.
This dictionary is a useful material for research, academic exercisers and presentations.
