Dear all,

I would like to draw your attention to my newly published Dictionary of
Atong by de Gruyter Mouton. Atong is a Tibeto-Burman language spoken in
Northeast India and Bangladesh. The dictionary provides a rigorous,
well-illustrated and well-referenced lexical description of the language,
making this book of great interest and value to general linguists,
typologists, as well as area specialists and cultural anthropologists.
Comprising not only of an Atong-English, but also English-Atong dictionary,
as well as semantic lexica, this volume is one of the most thorough lexical
descriptions of a Bodo-Garo language to date. The grammatical lexica allow
the reader quick access to lists of members of the various Atong word
classes, collocations and idiomatic expressions. The grammatical compendium
makes this book self-contained, while its many references link it to the
rest of the author’s corpus on the Atong language. The Appendix of Photos
not only provides visual illustrations to many of the Atong dictionary
entries, but also offers the reader a glance at the physical environment in
which the language is spoken
