Abstract:

Sedang is a language spoken in the southern highlands of Vietnam north of Kontum. The Sedang people have received brief scholarly mention for more than a century. But other than Kenneth Smith's grammar of Sedang and occasional papers the language has received little serious attention from linguists.

The format of this dictionary is unique in its combining the easy reference of alphabetical order with the semantic usefulness of a thesaurus, bringing related meanings together. This double usefulness unavoidably results in a degree of repetition, enlarging the size of the volume.

This Sedang dictionary is a valuable tool for linguistic comparatists, semanticists, dialecticians, anthropologists, and general Southeast Asianists. [In the interest of making this work available without further delay, we are posting it as it was received. It has not been peer reviewed.]
