Review by Sheena Shah
Centre for African Language Diversity, University of Cape Town
Social Dynamics: A journal of African studies, Volume 41, Issue 3, 2015

In June, 2014, the University of KwaZulu-Natal Press released the Juǀ’hoan Children’s Picture Dictionary authored by Tsemkgao Fanie Cwi, translator and founding member of the Juǀ’hoan Transcription Group, and Kerry Jones, a linguist from the University of KwaZulu-Natal. The trilingual dictionary (Juǀ’hoan, Afrikaans and English) is the result of a collaborative effort of academics and community members over several years. The dictionary is designed for community members in language teaching and learning efforts. In addition, it has the goal of introducing the Juǀ’hoansi, their culture and language to a wider readership.

The Ju|’hoan Children’s Picture Dictionary is a collaborative project between the Namibian Ju|’hoan from the Tsumkwe region and academics from various fields. The primary aim of this dictionary is to provide Ju|’hoan children with a piece of mother-tongue literature that is locally inspired and that can also be shared with those from the outside world.
