LI, Paul Jen-Kuei & Shigeru TSUCHIDA. Pazih dictionary. Taipei, Academia Sinica, 2001. 8vo. Boards. With coloured photographic illustrations. XII,391 pp. With autograph dedication by the author. - Pazih is a plain tribe language formerly spoken in the central-western part of Taiwan, around Fongyan areas and along the Dajia river. The language formerly known as Pazeh is reportedly down to its last fluent speaker, Mrs. Pan Jin-yu, born in 1914. The work under review is thus an extremely welcome contribution to the documentation of one of the most seriously under-described and endangered aboriginal languages of Taiwan. English and Chinese text. [Boeknr.: 36566 ]
