A Comparative Dictionary

Of The
Pwo Karen Dialect
Part 1
Pwo Karen - English
Compiled by
Rev. W. C. B. PURSER, M. A.,
Part II of this work was published before Part I, and all that the authors consi
dered it necessary to say by way of introduction has already been said in the Pr
eface to Part II.

ter the Pwo words.
The grammatical introduction at the end of Part I is rather awkwardly placed, as
it was only at the last moment that the decision to include such an introductio
n was arrived at; the authors feel sure that those who have struggled to master
the difficult Pwo dialect will welcome this introduction however difficult it ma
y be to find it!
The remarks on Tones and on the phonetics of the Consonants and Vowels contained
in sections 3 sqq. of the grammatical introduction should be regarded as tentat
