Your Source for Training and Reference Materials in Less-Commonly Taught Languages

Welcome to Dunwoody Press!

We are committed to publishing and fostering research in the less-commonly taught languages. As you browse our catalog you will find more than 200 publications that describe in 97 languages. Our primary focus is languages of

  • Africa,
  • Asia,
  • Central Europe, and
  • the Middle East.

Our products are developed for both the language learner and the language professional.

● Language learners will be especially interested in using our readers that feature authentic native language texts at the ILR (Interagency Language Roundtable) Level 2-3+, English translations, vocabularies, notes, and glossaries. Our textbooks have been rigorously tested in actual classroom usage and can be used with or without an instructor. Most of our publications also include basic grammatical descriptions of the source language.

● Advanced learners will benefit from our parallel texts and advanced readers that include native texts at ILR Levels 3 and above. Our reference grammars present detailed and learner-friendly analyses thus helping to refine one's understanding of the source language.

● Language professional will find our general language bilingual dictionaries and scientific and technical glossaries ideally suited to their research and translation needs. Our reference works are developed from source-language corpora and feature authentic examples of usage.
