ENGLISH-SESUTO 

VOCABULARY

MotyOy Basutoland 



This little book /x published in answer to a wifh repeatedly 
expretmed that tJie public fdioiild be prorided with an Enfflish- 
Sesii to ] Wa b u larji . 

A first attempt in this direction ivas made bij the Herd. J. 
Mabille^ in 1S94. His Dictionary rapidly sohl ofit^ bnt his 
premature death prevented him from rerisivfj it and puhUshiutj 
a second edition. For man if years nothing more urns done^ 
until, in 1902, tfie Herd. II. Ih'eterlen prepared a ^iesuto-Kng- 
lisli Vocabulary, which icas published last year. 

We hare hmg hesitated before undertaking the l'Jngli.^h-Se.<uto 
jmrt, as that meant overcoming a double difficulty : that of the 
language, the writer being a Frenchman, and lack of time. To 
write such a book, one sliould work at leisure and not under the 
pressure of a busy missionary life. None better than the com- 
piler knows the shortcomings of this Vocabulary. Such as if 
is, we hopp a will be useful and fulfil its task, until a complete 
and definitive Dictionary of the Sesuto language he published 
at the Mission Press. 

We nuMt add that Mabille's Ih'ctionary has been largely 
used in the compiling of the pi'esent volume. We wish also to 
thank Mr. F. Fnraght Motmy. llcsidt'nf Commissioner at 
Kmhahaan, Swaziland, formerly nf Basutoland, who kindly 
supplied us with the English, or rather South African, names 
of most of the animaU and birds nf the Basutoland Fauna ; also 
tho Jievd. H. Holland, missionary in the Transvaal, who scut 
us a Uhtful list of ciwreclions to Mabillrs Ih'rtionary.
