    Arte y Reglas: Kapampangan Grammar and Rules circa 1621

    Fr. Francisco Coronel

    Winner, National Book Award, Translation, 2006
    Transcripted, translated, and annotated by Fr. Edilberto V. Santos
    Fray Francisco Coronel, OSA, did not write the first Kapampangan grammar, or the best, but his Arte y Reglas de la Lengua Pampanga is the oldest in existence. And with the publication of this book, it is now also the first Kapampangan grammar from that period to be translated into English. Originally published in 1621, Arte y Reglas was a book written in Spanish to teach Kapampangan grammar. This publication by Holy Angel University contains the original text with a parallel English translation.
