Basque-English / English-Basque Dictionary & Phrasebook
by Joseph F. Conroy, Aitor Arana & Wim Jansen
Basque is an ancient language still spoken in regions of Northern Spain and Southwestern France—in and around the Pyrenees mountains. The origins of Basque are shrouded in the depths of time. Basque is not related to either Spanish or French, and the language has no apparent living relatives anywhere in the world. This makes Basque a fascinating study of human thought and culture.
