368 This dictionary of Tetum, the principal language of East Timor, is a pioneering work which sets out to provide a comprehensive, normative record of the Tetum vocabulary. The first such dictionary for the East Timorese people's lingua franca, its entries reflect the usage of modern literary Tetum as presented in the works of local writers. The Standard Tetum-English Dictionary contains a brief introductory section on the history of Tetum, a guide to spelling and pronunciation, a table of orthographical differences between Tetum and Portuguese, and an account of word building. The dictionary will be in considerable demand by East Timorese as an aid to learning English, and an invaluable resource for foreign learners and scholars of Tetum. Dr Geoffrey Hull, director of the Linguistic Survey of East Timor project at the University of Western Sydney Macarthur, is the author of several works on Tetum and the languages of East Timor.
