Traveller's Malay Pronouncing

Hand-Book

----

Fraser & Neave

This was one of the first books published for the ordinary Brit, who was not a scholar, to enable her/him to deal with "servants and other persons" in Malay. It's unique feature was to attempt to transliterate Malay into some sort of a phonetic system that could be more easily grasped by the native English speaker. The phrasebook has four columns for the English phrase, the translation into the Rumi script, the phonetic version and a blank column for notes. Good Paperback. Sixth Edition  317 pages with a 26 page index to works used in the text.

Weight 0.4kg. Post free within Malaysia

Published by Fraser & Neave, Singapore 1889

ConditionThe green cloth cover does not have much wear. At a couple of places in the book the hinge has cracked, but no pages are loose. The binding is good, the text is clear and there is very mild tanning throughout.
