As one of the official languages of Paraguay and with roughly six million total speakers, Guarani is one of the only indigenous American languages to flourish alongside Spanish. Although Guarani is spoken primarily in Paraguay's more rural areas, visitors will find some knowledge... of the language to be useful in urban centres like Asuncion, as well as some of the coastal communities of neighbouring Brazil. With over 7,000 entries, this is the most comprehensive bilingual Guarani/English dictionary available today. An exhaustive pronunciation and orthography section is supplied to ensure that users are understood when travelling. In addition, this volume provides parts of speech, illustrative examples, and etymological notes for words derived from Spanish. The book is primarily designed for travellers, but will also be a useful tool for linguists and South American scholars.
