MacIver’s Hakka-English Dictionary

There are two versions of this work online, the earlier 1905 publication was revised and expanded, later published in 1926. In the first edition, under the same Chinese character heading, words and phrases in Hakka are listed together. In the second edition, much of the vocabulary that did not begin with the lead character was either deleted or moved elsewhere. From a learner’s point of view, it is always nice to see a character in a phrase being used in context, which is why the 1905 edition is as good if not better for the learner of Hakka.
