Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Yoruba-English/English-Yoruba Modern Practical Dictionary (Paperback)
First and foremost, this is a commendable effort. The author, Ogbeni KJ Fakinlede, has gone to great lengths to translate "western" and "scientific" terms to Yorùbá and must be given kudos. But fairly basic, traditional and intrinsic Yorùbá terms have been omitted here and it boggles the mind as to why. I sincerely hope that a "faith bias" is not to blame here.
Having said that, it is the only product of its kind on the international market and so would recommend solely to beginners or non-Yorùbá speakers. For traditional and "deeper" words, look elsewhere.
