The description of Download Cebuano-English Dictionary 1.2 APK

This Cebuano-English Dictionary app contains the full text of "A Dictionary of Cebuano Visayan", edited by John U Wolff and first published in 1972. This dictionary is still one of the best dictionaries made for Cebuano.

Cebuano, also known as Visayan, Bisayan, or locally as Binisaya, is spoken in the provinces of Cebu, Negros Oriental, Siquijor, Bohol, and Leyte, in the Visayas region in the Central Philippines, as well as on the island of Mindanao in the Southern Philippines. Cebuano is related to, but distinguished from Hiligaynon (or Ilonggo) and Waray-Waray, languages which are also sometimes called "Visayan".

The content of this dictionary is based on original research between 1966 and 1972, in which the editor and his team collected samples of actual written and spoken Cebuano to use in this dictionary. Besides providing English definitions, it provides sample sentences for many words, all taken from daily usage.

When using this dictionary, please note that the spelling of words used is different from the normal orthography. In line with the editor's focus on the language as spoken, the dictionary uses a phonetic transcription that uses only three vowels, "a", "i", and "u". The "o" and "i" are not used. The search interface has been adjusted, such that words spelled in the normal way will still be found, for example, if you search for "unom", six, the dictionary will return unum.

The app provides a fast searchable interface, structured formatting of entries, and allows reverse look-ups to a limited extend.
