Miscellaneous Notes

What about the Buli-Dictionary?

Often I am asked whether the Buli-English Dictionary is still available on the book-market. For some years the book has been out of stock at the publishing house (LIT-Verlag Münster, Germany). Nevertheless, book-stores may have some single copies for sale. In September 2004 for example, I saw the dictionary at Foyles Bookshop (London, 113-119 Charing Cross Road, tel. 02074375660, www.foyles.co.uk), where it was offered for 29.95.

LIT has agreed to publish a revised second edition, as the list of advance orders is getting larger. Fr. Alfred Agyenta has taken the trouble to revise the book and correct many mistakes, especially in the Buli sentences. Others, e.g. Mr Peter Anayang from the Wiaga Chief's house have promised further help. Nevertheless, it may be another two years before at last the new edition can appear.
