It has been quite sometime since I last wrote about the Chichewa-English dictionary project, which is being led by Rev Dr Steven Paas. Since 2016, this dictionary is published by Oxford University Press (OUP). 

The book has proved to be a much needed tool for schools and other places of learning and communication in transcultural situations in the whole of Chichewa/Chinyanja speaking Africa and elsewhere in the world.

Oxford University Press (OUP) distributes the dictionary to its agents, who
deliver quantities to booksellers in their countries in Africa, Europe, America and elsewhere.

In Malawi, OUP’s agent is Mrs Gaulphine Nyirenda, who can be contacted on  Some Malawian bookshops that offer the dictionary are as follows: Maneno Bookshops (Lilongwe and Mzuzu), Grey Matters (Lilongwe), Central Bookshops (Blantyre), Bookmate
Shop (Blantyre), Curious Minds Bookshop (Blantyre), Eye Shop (Monkey Bay). 

In other countries in Southern Africa, the dictionary is available in the following places:

The dictionary can also be bought online on the following websites:
