Great dictionary of the Yi language! The first part is sorted for the Yi script characters, with the Latin Yi "Pinyin" alphabet behind it, followed by quite precise IPA including tones, part of speech, Chinese translation and English translations, sometimes even with a short explanation of grammatical things or culture-specific words. The second part contains an index Chinese-Pinyin-YiScript-YiPinyin, the third part is English-YiScript-YiPinyin. In the beginning and end there's some description about the language itself, and quite handy is the YiPinyin-IPA conversion table at the end of the book. You can tell that the book is done by SIL, because they used Gentium as a font, haha! By the way, original price: 68 Yuan.
