A New Rotuman Dictionary
with an English to Rotuman Word-Finder List
This book was originally published in 1940 as part of Rotuman Grammar and Dictionary by the missionary linguist C. Maxwell Churchward, who spent sixteen years in Rotuma and Fiji between 1921 and 1937. The dictionary portion is being re-issued by the Institute of Pacific Studies at the University of the South Pacific. The original version only contained a Rotuman to English dictionary, but the re-issue includes an English to Rotuman word list as well. This should prove a benefit for those individuals wishing to learn Rotuman vocabulary.
