Description: One of the national languages of Nigeria and an important language of neighboring Benin, Togo, and other western African nations, Yoruba is spoken by over 20 million people worldwide. Today, the Yoruba people comprise roughly a quarter of the 300-odd Nigerian ethnolinguistic groups. Various forms of the Yoruba language can be heard as far north as the United Kingdom, and as far west as Brazil and Cuba. This dictionary offers invaluable resources to both Yoruba and English speakers, enabling them to handle the complex scientific and mathematical terminology of today. It lends English speakers and other non-Yoruba a tool with which to learn and study the Yoruba language, while simultaneously giving Yoruba authors, scholars, students, and educators a voice to reach each other and the rest of the world in their native language. This bilingual dictionary is brimming with useful vocabulary and technical information including medical terms, the basic chemical elements, as well as plant and animal taxonomy. It is ideal for aid workers, scientists, journalists, environment lists, or anyone who needs a solid reference to the Yoruba language. Examples are given in both languages along with some parts of speech to help clarify ambiguous meanings. Kayode J. Fakinlede graduated from Rutgers University with a doctorate in applied chemistry. He is a Yoruba born in Nigeria and currently lives and works in Metuchen, New Jersey. Paperback 500 pages 5 1/2 X 8 1/2 30,000 entries.
