    Ivatan-Filipino-English Dictionary: The Cultural Dictionary of Batanes

    Cesar Hidalgo

    Winner, National Book Award, Linguistics, 1998
    This is the first dictionary completed based on a lexicological model designed to bring about a better understanding of the culture of the speakers of the base language through an identification and examination of culturally relevant domains in bilingual or multilingual dictionaries. The base language for this trilingual dictionary is the Ivatan language, spoken in Batanes; Lanyu island, Taiwan (sometimes called Orchid Island or Botel Tobago); Babuyan and Calayan; and by Ivatans who migrated in the 1950s, and Ivatan professionals and students in Metro Manila.
