A basic Saho-English-Italian Dictionary (2003)
by Moreno Vergari and Roberta Vergari
Some parts of the original version (Contents, Alphabet and Orthography, English-Saho Index, Alphabetical list of botanical scientific names, Saho Bibliography, Corrigenda et Addenda) are not included here, as well as the Grammatical Notes (by Giorgio Banti and Moreno Vergari).
The revision mainly concerned some typographical errors. The authors are therefore aware of various inaccuracies that still exist. A new dictionary, completely revised and greatly expanded, is under preparation.
