An Iu-Mienh-English Dictionary with Cultural Notes
By Herbert C. Purnell
With the assistance of Zanh, Gueix-Fongc, V. Ann Burgess and Greg Aumann
Work on this dictionary began in 1987 as a revision of the Yao-English Dictionary (Lombard & Purnell 1968), the first Iu Mien dictionary published in English. That it needed revising was not surprising when realizing the difficulties the authors faced in the mid-sixties. Today the political situation in Laos is far different to then and the Mien people have spread not only into the lowlands of Laos and Thailand, but also as far as the US. The mistakes of the earlier dictionary can now be corrected and a far larger range of words and phrases can now be included.
