This learner’s dictionary is part of a series which includes Spoken Pangasinan and Pangasinan Reference Grammar all by Mr. Benton. These with similar materials for six other Philippine languages have been developed under a Peace Corps project (PC 25–1507) by the Pacific and Asian Linguistics Institute (PALI) of the University of Hawaii.
It is the hope of the author of these materials and the editor of the series that many will profit from them. Only as we learn others’ languages will we really come to know them. The traditional goodwill that exists between the people of the two countries responsible for these texts will be enhanced by those who take the time and effort to study such materials.
