This is a facsimile edition of the Palaung word list prepared by the late Prof. Harry Shorto in 1957 and not published in its entirety until now. Prof. Shorto spent time in Burma in the late 1950s, where he compiled materials for his A Dictionary of Modern Spoken Mon (1962) and A Dictionary of the Mon Inscriptions (1971). At the time he also collected data on various minority languages, especially Palaungic language of the Shan State. The present word list was found among boxes kept by his daughter Anna, which she kindly donated to the present series editor (Sidwell) for the purposes of publication and archiving. The entries in this word list are written in a phonemic transcription, they are glossed in English, and are richly augmented with etymological commentary that includes citations from Shan, Burmese and many Austroasiatic languages. The images were created by scanning the original pages at 200 DPI in greyscale
