It is important to note that this dictionary by Barber is the original. Tuttle Books is now publishing exactly the same dictionary under the authorship of Father Peter N. Shadeg. The only difference between the original and the Tuttle publication is this. As Barber mentions in his introduction, when nearly finished with his dictionary, he came across a number of new words that he had not previously included. The book was typed on an old fashioned hand typewriter to be later mimeographed. Rather than re-type the manuscript, Barber included the new words as an addendum to his original and published the addendum with it. Wherever one of the addendum words should be inserted into the main text, Barber put a little plus sign, indicating that one should look in the addendum for that word in alphabetical order.
The only change that Tuttle made was to incorporate the words in the addendum alphabetically into the text. They made no other changes at all. Therefore Father Shadeg is not the author of the dictionary, Barber is. In fact, Father Shadeg loaned me his personal copy of the Barber book so that I could have it photocopied. On the title page is an inscription in Barber's handwriting to Shadeg: "To the Revd [sic] Peter N. Shadeg with the author's compliments"
I have pointed out this error to Tuttle and its parent company Perplus Editions, but nothing has been done to correct the error. Shadeg had nothing to do with this book.
