Abstract

Paul Jen-kuei Li and Shigeru Tsuchida. 2001. Pazih dictionary. Language and Linguistics Monograph Series No. A2. Taipei: Institute of Linguistics (Preparatory Of²ce), Academia Sinica. ISBN 957-671-790-6. xii + 391pp. NT 700, US$25, cloth. The language formerly known as Pazeh is reportedly down to its last ³uent 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.1 Both authors (hereafter L&T) have worked intermittently on Pazeh over a period of many years. A manuscript vocabulary compiled by Tsuchida in 1969 has been available to interested researchers on a personal basis for several decades, and was previously the most extensive source of lexical information available on this language. The present work represents a collaboration in which Li has added his own ²eldnotes to the manuscript vocabulary of Tsuchida, and the two then worked together with Mrs. Pan to complete their analysis.
