FOREWORD Manipuri is one of the irnpmiant languages of northeastern India belonging to Tibeto-Burman family. This language is spoken by nearly 1.3 million (1991) people. Among them 19.31% are bilinguals. The language is very rich in its structure and vocabulary. As such there are many good modern linguistic descriptions on it. However, lexicographical activities did not receive similar attention of the scholars. In that perspective the present dictionary is an important contribution to Manipuri Lexicography. This dictionary has been compiled by a well-trained linguist Dr. Surmangol Sharma, who is also a native speaker of this language. He was fortunate to have got two years of post-doctoral fellowship at Tokyo University of Foreign Studies, Tokyo, Japan. There he could get very good training in lexicography and also had interaction with many famous scholars. This has enhanced the quality of this work. This dictionary has been targeted for students. For development of languages dictionaries also play a major role. To appreciate this fact one can look at the number and variety of dictionaries available for English language. Similar activities need to take place for all languages if they have to develop. In this 1ight I congratulate Dr. Surmangol Sharma for taking this challenging and tedious work and completing within a reasonable time and also getting it published. l hope the educated people of the state and more particularly the Manipuri students will find this dictionary immensely beneficial. This dictionary has many interesting easy-to-use features, like using of roman script assists any Manipuri speaker with some English knowledge to read and understand. Taking into account the needs of the modern world, particularly the demand for using one's own script in schools, etc., 1!Jc compiler has appropriately provided head-entries in Meitei Mayek (Meitei script). This is an mnovation and it directly responds to the present needs of the students and educated class. Also, Manipuri being an agglutinative language each morpheme need to be identified and classified appropriately. This dictionary does this systematically and effectively. This assists greatly in understanding the structure of words . I am sure that the students will find this feature to be highly innovative as well as useful. The value of a work of this type cannot be overestimated at the present time, time will itself mark it. Undoubtedly this dictionary is a weli-descrved contribution to Manipuri Language and Linguistics. I again congratulate Dr. Surmangol Sharma for this excellent work and also hope that he will be able to bring out many more scholarly works in years to come. I wish him all the best.

The tradition of Manipuri lexicography goes back to some fi fly years or so. /\ kind English-Manipuri bilingual dictionary is popularly used as a help for learning English by the Manipuri speaket·s. On the other hand, the lexicographical work on Manipuri-English or Hindi, initially, attracted less audience because of the misconception that this kind of dictionary does not help in learning a second language. However, a bilingual dictionary serves more than a single purpose. The pioneer work of Padmashree N. Khelchandra Singh entitled Manipuri to lvfanipuri and English dictionary, first published in 1964, is a landmark in the history of Manipuri lexicography. The entries in this dictionary are made in Manipuri and definitions are given in both Manipuri and English or in English only in some places. There has been a long gap since the publication of the first Manipuri bilingual dictionary until Dr. Imoba's work entitled 1Vfanipuri to English Dictionary, published in 2004, sci; a ncw trend with an attempt to reflect the agglutinative nature of this language, correct pronunciation of the \\'Ol"ds with phonetic transcription using IPA (International Phonetic Alphabet), bound nature of the morphemes that is rich in Manipuri. The Learner's lvfanipuri Dictionary is a Manipuri-English bilingual dictionary, targeting the audience as the non-Manipuri speakers. The entries arc presented differently from the above mentioned dictionaries. First, the user may directly access it without learning Manipuri writing system in Bengali script as the entries are made in roman transliteration. Secondly, the users may as well take the opportunity of learning the resurgent Meitei Mayek (Meitei script), which is written just after the transliterated entries of every Headword. The presentation of morpheme segmentation of he Head and Sub-bead entries in Lhe dictionary is also a main high\ ight of the dictionary. There are areas \Vhere the gloss of morphemes arc opaque, so are left with the abbreviation (id.) meaning 'the same'. The present dictionary is based upon the computerized database of Manipuri Lexicon \vhich I prepared during my 2-year post-doctoral fellowship awarded to me by the Japan Society for the Prmnotion of Science (JSPS) from May 2002 to April 2004. 1 would like to record my gratitude to JSPS, Institute for the Study of Languages and Cultures of Asia and Africa (lLCAA), Tokyo University of Foreign Studies, for being the sponsor and the host institute during my stay in Japan. I thank Prof. Koji Miyazaki, director of ILCAA, for accommodating and a!IO\ving me to use all the facilities in the Institute. It will be a great pleasure for me to convey my gratitude and appreciation to Prof Peri Bhaskararao who \Vas my host professor, for his guidance, co-operation, inspiration, collaboration and for any kind of he! p he extended. I am also very much indebted to convey my thanks to Prof Kazuhiko Machida, Dr. Junichi Oda, Dr. Ilideo Sawada, Dr. Shintaro Arakawa, Dr. Terry Joyce, Dr. Susan E. Oehler for their co-operation and help during my JSPS fellowship. I thank the faculty member of the Department of linguistics, Manipur University, for sharing their knowledge about the structure of Manipuri Lexicon with me, and that ultimately helps to arrive at the present shape of the dictionary. My warmest thanks are due to Khaidem Sanajaoba, a former lecturer in the department of English, Lilong Haoreibi College, Manipur, for spending his valuable time in going through the final draft of the dictionary and making commendable suggestions.

EXPLANATORY NOTES SORT ORDER The dict ionary follows the sort order as given below :

a GJ a u:1 i YJ u ~ e mo ei m'~' o GJa ou m!S' ka Llll kha rr: gaIT" gha ~ nga ;m ca R ja z; jha ~ ta 5lS tha ;r; da (jl dha J na c pa :1nl pha E ba < ra ff' Ia 2 wa n sa C"J ha r STRUCTURE OF ENTRIES ·E ntries may contain the parts in the fo llowing order: 1. Headword (transliterated). 2. Meitei Mayek (Meitei Script). 3. Phonemic transcription. 4. Grammatical category. 5. Gloss. 6. Morph. 7. Variant. 8. Sub-head.

1. Headwords are transliterated in roman script*. Derived words are us ually not entered as headwords but under the same base word on which they arc formed , e.g. centhok- 'to run outside' is entered under cen- 'to run' , and similarly many other deri ved words fo rmed on this base . Common adverbs of manner are usually entered under the related base word, e.g. thuna ' quickly' is entered under thu- 'to be quick'. Adjectives are usuall y derived words but are ind ividually entered them as headwords. This may pose convenient for the users, when searching for common adjectives because they are formed by prefi xing a- 'attributive' and suffixing -pa or -ba 'nominali zer' to the verb, e .g. a-p ha-ba 'good '. Some compounds are entered as subheads and some of them as heads depend ing upon their status in Manipuri !ex icon, e.g. ukhii 'a place or point under a tree' is entered unde r u ' tree ' \Vhi le ukhun ' a ho le in the ground to erect a pole or post is entered as a headword . Headwords include some items wh ;ch arc not independent lexical units of the language, viz. prefixes and suffixes, e.g. o- ' attributive', ma- 'noun marker ', -p i 'noun formatter' , - i 'rea lised' . Hyphens are used after t he entries, which arc bound in nature instead of entering such lexical items with -pa or -ha. This arrangement hopes to make the users easily recognize the grammatical distinction of the derived nouns or adjectives from the verbs. 2. Meitei Mayek (Meitei Script) is as well written after the roman transliterated headwords. The dictionary adopts the resurgent Meitei Mayek, wh ich is taught in the schools of Manipur. .However, the order of the letters has been rearranged so as to make them fit into the sort order of this dictionary and the use of lum 'a diacritic for tonal distinction' is avo ided fo r the fact that this feature never remains unchanged in the course of d ifferent morpho logical and syntactical organizations, e.g. lei ll~i/ 'earth, so il ' becomes leimu /l~ i.mu/ ' a kind of black soil used in plastering the wall ', mi / ml/ 'person' + pha /p11 a/ 'arrest' becomes m iphd /m i.pha/ in mip hci mipun /mi.pha ml.pun/ 'act of mass arrest' .

• A Manipuri conso nant when rendered into the roman script transliteration is represented with an inherent vowel.


3. Phonemic transcription. A broad transcription is given rcr each entry. The high tone is marked while the level tone is unmarked, e.g. un f~{l! fun/ 'sn;)\V' .~Tl!! / Lin/ 'skin' . 4. Grammatical category. The entries are assigned to the relevant \VOrd-class. They arc written in abbreviations. 5. Gloss, illustrates the core sense(s) of the headword. Glosses are divided from one another by semicolons or comas. Glosses are numbered wherever necessary. Prominent meanings of headwords are entered before les$ prominent meanings.

6. Morph. This part shows morpheme segmentation of the headword or sub-head ·word provided the corresponding gloss is given in square brackets. In cases where the morphophonemic chan ge is less explicit, the source of the altered form is presented in brackets after the resultant tonn, e.g. sd-m(! om]. angouba mmf'5 Ioff /i.dai.rem/ n. favourite servant or attendant, when referred to the first person, generally not used in day-to-day speech.
