The Ju|'hoan Children's Picture Dictionary is a collaborative project between the Namibian Ju|'hoan from Namibia's Tsumkwe region and academics from various fields. The primary aim of the 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. Entries in this thematic dictionary are in the Ju|AEhoan Tsumkwe dialect, Afrikaans and English. All the illustrations and artwork were created by Ju|AEhoan people from the Tsumkwe region, who share their knowledge and insight into different facets of Ju|AEhoan daily life. Great care has gone into the making of this dictionary, with members of the Ju|AEhoan community leading the way in the selection of themes, lexical entries, design and layout to make this publication a community-driven project that highlights Ju|AEhoan culture. The categories selected show entries gives rare and fascinating insight into the staple artefacts and traditions of San life.
Included is an interactive CD with a pronunciation guide for each entry provided by Ju|AEhoan speakers, as well as a photo and video gallery, short biographies of contributors, interesting information about the Ju|AEhoan people and a fun, printable language game. By buying this Dictionary you are helping to spread awareness about the Ju|AEhoan language and culture, to stop this endangered language from disappearing forever.
