Haitian Creole-English Bilingual Dictionary

At the time of publication, this was the Creole Institute's most exhaustive dictionary to date. With its 30,000 separate word entries and 70,000 word meanings, it is an excellent companion to the newly published English-Haitian Creole Bilingual Dictionary (2017) and the Learner's Dictionary of Haitian Creole. Anyone who regularly reads texts in Haitian Creole or who needs to decipher spoken samples will surely find this to be an invaluable resource. (781 pages, hard cover)

"The publishing of a new dictionary is always good news. When this dictionary documents a language for which there is not extensive lexicographic tradition, this is excellent news. And when this dictionary hits the level of quality that the Haitian Creole-English Bilingual Dictionary does, it is the kind of news that needs to be srpead and applauded. Language teachers, linguists in general, and creolists in particular, will all benefit from this new resource. Let's spread the news!" - Review by Professor Marie-Anne Brousseau, University of Toronto, Journal of Pidgin and Creole Languages, 2008

This project has been funded by the United States Department of Education International Research and Studies Program (Title VI).
