English-Konkani Language Dictionary / Angelus Francis Xavier Maffei / Imprimatur: N. Pagani, S. J. Pro-Vicar Apostolic / 1990 2nd Reprint 

Hardcover - 1990 2nd Reprint

by Angelus Francis Xavier Maffei

545 pages

In presenting this Dictionary, the first attempt of its kind in Konkani, to the public, it would, the Author conceives, be sufficient claim to their legitimate indulgence to state that the bulk of the work is the fruit of an extremely short acquaintance with English, and of a still shorter one with Konakani. But it should further be borne in mind that the Author has had no written materials whatever to assist him in his work. The Konkani language hitherto has existed only in the mouth of the people, and it has been part of the Author’s task, first, to pick up the language by personal intercourse with them, and secondly, to endeavor to reduce it to method and uniformity. Moreover, circumstances have rendered it impossible for him to carry the manuscript, at least the English-Konkani portion of it, through the press himself, so that he has been debarred from correcting faults which he would otherwise have seen proper to correct in the course of publication.
