The Most Comprehensive Eurasian Heritage Dictionary:
Kristang-English / English-Kristang
Catherine Scully & Valerie Zuzarte
New. One of the amazing after effects of Portuguese colonialsm is that it left behind communities with Portuguese ancestors who continued to maintain their memories of Portuguese langauage and culture with little or no contact with the motherland. In Malaysia, the Portuguese Eurasian community was concentrated in Malacca. This book is a welcome effort to document the state of the language and culture today. Two native speakers of Papiah Kristang, as the language is called in Malaysia and Singapore, team up to provide not only a comprehensive dictionary with a pronounciation guide and the basics of grammar, but also cultural notes on names, cuisine, history and traditions. 256 pages.
