Abstract

This article recounts the genesis, growth and turbulent events that accompanied the compilation of the , that is, the Monolingual Lusoga Dictionary. Contrasting academia with the trade, legacy with state-of-the-art dictionary compilation software, high praise and visibility with daily and down-to-earth drudgery, it recounts the events chronologically, from humble to grand, from paper to digital, from success to insignificance, and leads to a set of highly realistic proposals to be considered by all those involved in the compilation of explanatory dictionaries for the African languages.


Olupapula luno lwandhula obuzibu obwekulungila mu kuwandiika . Ebizibu ebyalimu bigelaagelanhizibwa n'ebyo ebitela okwagwanibwa mu kweyunila ebyetaago by'emisomo, eby'obusuubuzi ni mu mitegeko egitela okukozesebwa mu kuwandiika amawanika. Ebyetaago ebili mu mitendela gino gyonsatule biweebwa okulaga nti, okutendelezebwa okwandibaile kugwaniile okuweebwa omulimu ogw'ekika kino tikufunibwa. Omutindo ogulowoozebwa nti guteebwawo abandi kwe bayinza okusinziila gubuusibwabuusibwa bw'ogugelaagelanhia n'ebizibu ebigwetooloile mu bulamu obwa buliidho. Olulapula luno lukulaga nti, okuwandiika kwa okw'atandiikila mu mbeela ennafu, kw'asobolwa okutumbulwa okutuusibwa ku mutindo gw'amawanika agandi mu nsi yoonayoona. Obuvumu bw'enkola eyo, bw'asobozesa eiwanika lino okuva mu mbeela y'ekitabo ekigemebwaku okwizibwa mu mbeela y'omutegekowaziso ogusomwa ku kompyuta. Ebyafaayo ebiweebwa mu lupapula luno bigendelela kuwa kyakubonelaku eli abo abandyenze okugelaagelanhia ebisoboka n'ebitasoboka mu kuwandiika amawanika mu nnimi dha Africa enzaalilanwa.
