The present volume complements the study of the Anywa language by the same author published in 1996. Anywa is a western Nilotic language related to Shilluk and used to be spoken in Ethiopia and Sudan along the rivers Sobat, Baro, Gelo, and Akobo by approximately 200,000 people. More recent data estimate a number of only 100,000 speakers anymore.

The lexical material was collected during an extended field study in Khartoum between July 1985 and March 1989 by the author with the help of S.A. Akwey. In 1997 C.U. Uriat cross-checked the Anywa entries and their English equivalents, provided additional material and supplied appropriate sentences to illustrate the use of the lexemes.

By the main author of this dictionary a comprehensive grammar of Anywa was published in the same series, see the following link:
