A contemporary English-Ilokano Dictionary written by Aurelio Solver Agcaoili will be launched at the the 5th Nakem International Conference to be held on Dec. 16-18, 2010 in Caoayan, Ilocos Norte, a resort town close to the famed world heritage city of Vigan.
The dictionary, following a pre-category approach, is in support of the effort to intellectualize the Ilokano language and make it responsive to the changes of a globalized world without losing sight of the requisites of indigenousness.
Agcaoili is currently the program coordinator for Ilokano at the University of Hawaii at Manoa. He is one of the founding officers of 170+ Talaytayan MLE, an advocacy group dedicated to cultural democracy and linguistic justice in education.
