A Badaga-English Dictionary
A dictionary documenting the language of the Badaga community of the Nilgiri Hills in Southern India, based on linguistic data recorded throughout the period from 1963 to 1990, and designed with the requirements of the non-native English speaker in mind. For such users, first, the method of transcription of Badaga words is phonetic, and bears no reference to either English or Tamil ways of transcribing the language. Secondly, several English words are commonly listed together as translations of one Badaga lexeme. Also of assistance are the bibliographical references added to the entries for many of the nouns--wherever possible to books which were published recently or to books which, though now old, are still useful and have recently been reprinted.
