Abstract:
THE AUTHOR HAS COMPILED THIS DICTIONARY DURING 5 YEARS OF WORK ON THE LANGUAGE. THE PHONEMIC SYMBOLS USED, THEIR PHONETIC VALUES, AND THE MORPHOSYNTATIC CATEGORIES ASSIGNED FOR EACH ITEM ARE THE SAME AS THOSE IN HIS “AN OUTLINE GRAMMAR OF SIERRA LEONE KRIO.” SINCE KRIO IS NOT AN OFFICIAL LANGUAGE AND THERE EXIST SEVERAL ORTHOGRAPHIES, THE WORDS WHICH CLEARLY DERIVE FROM STANDARD ENGLISH ARE GIVEN IN ENGLISH SPELLING FOLLOWED BY A PHONEMIC TRANSCRIPTION OF THE KRIO PRONUNCIATION AND A DEFINITION IN STANDARD ENGLISH. AFRICANISMS AND OTHER ITEMS NOT OF ENGLISH ORIGIN ARE ENTERED ONLY IN PHONEMIC TRANSCRIPTION. TONE AND INTONATION ARE NOT MARKED, BUT EACH ITEM IS DISPLAYED IN THE CONTEXT OF A PHRASE OR SENTENCE.
