A Grammar and Dictionary of the Samoan Language in English and Samoan

he former editions of this work having passed out of print, in compliance with the urgent suggestions of several friends and a strong impression on my own mind of the necessity for preserving the usefulness of the work, I halve now prepared a revised and enlarged edition, and have also introduced into it valuable additions which will be found of great advantage to the student of the Samoan language. From a volume of MS. songs, written out by a native poet, and lent me by the Rev. G. Brown, I culled 500 new words. On a visit to Samoa in 1885,1 ascertained the correct meaning of these words from various pundits, and also collected many other words at the same time. Since then I have added to the new collection while translating a volume of myths and legends, c., compiled by the late Eev. T. Powell. From Marsden s Malay Dictionary I obtained 180 Eastern Polynesian roots, which I have inserted in their places. There are also many resemblances found in the Malay Grammar to the Samoan. (S ee note appended. (Typographical errors above are due to OCR software and don't occur in the book.)
