Item Code : UHAW18122University of Hawaii Press. 376 pages. Spoken Chamorro is designed to enable the student to learn to speak and understand the Chamorro language the way native speakers do in their everyday activities. This second edition has been revised to incorporate the spelling conventions adopted by the Marianas Orthography Committee in January 1971, and suggestions made by teachers who have used the text in the classroom. The basic material in the text remains unchanged, the work of the author and Pedro M. Ogo, principal of Rota Elementary and High School, who is a native speaker of the language. As much as possible, the lessons exclude regionalisms, presenting the language as it is heard generally on Guam, Saipan, Rota, and elsewhere throughout the Mariana Islands.
