A propos de ce livre

Ceci est une copie numrique dun ouvrage conserv depuis des gnrations dans les rayonnages dune bibliothque avant dtre numris avec
prcaution par Google dans le cadre dun projet visant permettre aux internautes de dcouvrir lensemble du patrimoine littraire mondial en
ligne.
Ce livre tant relativement ancien, il nest plus protg par la loi sur les droits dauteur et appartient prsent au domaine public. Lexpression
appartenir au domaine public signifie que le livre en question na jamais t soumis aux droits dauteur ou que ses droits lgaux sont arrivs
expiration. Les conditions requises pour quun livre tombe dans le domaine public peuvent varier dun pays lautre. Les livres libres de droit sont
autant de liens avec le pass. Ils sont les tmoins de la richesse de notre histoire, de notre patrimoine culturel et de la connaissance humaine et sont
trop souvent difficilement accessibles au public.
Les notes de bas de page et autres annotations en marge du texte prsentes dans le volume original sont reprises dans ce fichier, comme un souvenir
du long chemin parcouru par louvrage depuis la maison ddition en passant par la bibliothque pour finalement se retrouver entre vos mains.

Consignes dutilisation

Google est fier de travailler en partenariat avec des bibliothques la numrisation des ouvrages appartenant au domaine public et de les rendre
ainsi accessibles tous. Ces livres sont en effet la proprit de tous et de toutes et nous sommes tout simplement les gardiens de ce patrimoine.
Il sagit toutefois dun projet coteux. Par consquent et en vue de poursuivre la diffusion de ces ressources inpuisables, nous avons pris les
dispositions ncessaires afin de prvenir les ventuels abus auxquels pourraient se livrer des sites marchands tiers, notamment en instaurant des
contraintes techniques relatives aux requtes automatises.
Nous vous demandons galement de:

+ Ne pas utiliser les fichiers des fins commerciales Nous avons conu le programme Google Recherche de Livres lusage des particuliers.
Nous vous demandons donc dutiliser uniquement ces fichiers des fins personnelles. Ils ne sauraient en effet tre employs dans un
quelconque but commercial.
+ Ne pas procder des requtes automatises Nenvoyez aucune requte automatise quelle quelle soit au systme Google. Si vous effectuez
des recherches concernant les logiciels de traduction, la reconnaissance optique de caractres ou tout autre domaine ncessitant de disposer
dimportantes quantits de texte, nhsitez pas nous contacter. Nous encourageons pour la ralisation de ce type de travaux lutilisation des
ouvrages et documents appartenant au domaine public et serions heureux de vous tre utile.
+ Ne pas supprimer lattribution Le filigrane Google contenu dans chaque fichier est indispensable pour informer les internautes de notre projet
et leur permettre daccder davantage de documents par lintermdiaire du Programme Google Recherche de Livres. Ne le supprimez en
aucun cas.
+ Rester dans la lgalit Quelle que soit lutilisation que vous comptez faire des fichiers, noubliez pas quil est de votre responsabilit de
veiller respecter la loi. Si un ouvrage appartient au domaine public amricain, nen dduisez pas pour autant quil en va de mme dans
les autres pays. La dure lgale des droits dauteur dun livre varie dun pays lautre. Nous ne sommes donc pas en mesure de rpertorier
les ouvrages dont lutilisation est autorise et ceux dont elle ne lest pas. Ne croyez pas que le simple fait dafficher un livre sur Google
Recherche de Livres signifie que celui-ci peut tre utilis de quelque faon que ce soit dans le monde entier. La condamnation laquelle vous
vous exposeriez en cas de violation des droits dauteur peut tre svre.

This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on library shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project
to make the worlds books discoverable online.
It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject
to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country to country. Public domain books
are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge thats often difficult to discover.
Marks, notations and other marginalia present in the original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this books long journey from the
publisher to a library and finally to you.

Usage guidelines

Google is proud to partner with libraries to digitize public domain materials and make them widely accessible. Public domain books belong to the
public and we are merely their custodians. Nevertheless, this work is expensive, so in order to keep providing this resource, we have taken steps to
prevent abuse by commercial parties, including placing technical restrictions on automated querying.
We also ask that you:

+ Make non-commercial use of the files We designed Google Book Search for use by individuals, and we request that you use these files for
personal, non-commercial purposes.
+ Refrain from automated querying Do not send automated queries of any sort to Googles system: If you are conducting research on machine
translation, optical character recognition or other areas where access to a large amount of text is helpful, please contact us. We encourage the
use of public domain materials for these purposes and may be able to help.
+ Maintain attribution The Google watermark you see on each file is essential for informing people about this project and helping them find
additional materials through Google Book Search. Please do not remove it.
+ Keep it legal Whatever your use, remember that you are responsible for ensuring that what you are doing is legal. Do not assume that just
because we believe a book is in the public domain for users in the United States, that the work is also in the public domain for users in other
countries. Whether a book is still in copyright varies from country to country, and we cant offer guidance on whether any specific use of
any specific book is allowed. Please do not assume that a books appearance in Google Book Search means it can be used in any manner
anywhere in the world. Copyright infringement liability can be quite severe.

INTRODUCTION.

THE first Dictionary of the Yoruba language was published


in the year 1843, compiled by Samuel (afterwards Bishop)
Crowther. This was greatly altered and considerably enlarged
for a new edition in 1852. For many years this book was
the standard work on the Yoruba language.
In 1911 an English-Yoruba Dictionary was published under
the general editorship of the Rev. E. J. f?owande, but this
was only intended to meet immediate needs, and, like the
older book, is out of print.
The present Dictionary is indebted to the above works
very largely, and to a number of contributors who have
devoted much valuable time to the work. In addition to
the names of the late Bishop Crowther and the Rev. E. J.
f?owande, those of Mrs. E. Fry and the Rev. T. A. J. Ogunbiyi
ought to be specially mentioned.
The publishers earnestly request that their attention may
be called to any errors or omissions noticed by users of
the Dictionary. Communications should be addressed to The
Manager, C.M.S. Bookshop, -Lagos.

NOTES ON SOUNDS OF CERTAIN LETTERS.

THE five vowels, a, e, i, 0, u, represent the sounds as heard in the following


English words-
a has the sound of a in bath.
e ai in bait.
ea in beat.
o oa in boat.
u 00 in boot.

There are also two modified vowels and three diphthongs--


1;1, a sound which is fairly represented by the short e in such words as
let, met, red.
Q, a sound between a and 0 as heard in taw, water, bought.
ai, equivalent to the English i in mile.
oi, nearly equivalent to the English oi in voice, but the 0 retains its
long sound.
au, nearly equivalent to the English ou in round.'
Among the consonants it is only necessary to notice that--
g is always hard, as in go.
j is always soft, as in jam.
.h has always its distinct sound as an aspirate, and is never mute.
p and gb have sounds which do not exist in the English language, but
can only be learnt by the ear.
" has the sound of sh, as in shop.
Of the accents, none are employed as in English merely to mark the
streBB to be laid on a particular syllable.
The circumflex (-) usually indicates a contraction, which is also in all
cases a long syllable, e.g., dAbobo, which is a contraction of daabo-bo.
The acute (') and grave (') accents are simply marks of intonation
i.e., of. the rise or fall of the voice.
