Title:1783 - Schumann - Dictionary
'Neger-Englisches Worterbuch'
Contributor (author):C. L. Schumann
Description:This manuscript dictionary is the third edition of 'Neger-Englisches Worterbuch' [Negro-English Dictionary'], dated April 1783. It was first transcribed by Kramp (1983) and later corrected and digitalized by Adrienne Bruyn at the University of Amsterdam. It is a sophisticated dictionary, as it not only includes translations of Sranan words and lists varieties of Sranan, but it also includes information on the different senses a word can convey, its uses and its (grammatical) functions. He further includes information on flora and fauna, cultural customs and religious practices (see also Kramp 1983). Really remarkable is the fact that he worked with one or several consultants, who are quoted throughout the dictionary int he first person plural.
