Visual Mangani English Dictionary
Created by Jairo Uparella

The Visual Mangani-English Dictionary is the result of a fictitious linguistic research to make available to the readers of Edgar Rice Burroughs the dialect of the great apes, which was created in 1912 for Tarzan of the Apes novels.

Its etymological content made it possible to successfully create a compendium of grammar, illustrations and many words such as verbs, nouns, pronouns, adverbs and prepositions, making it very pleasant and digestible. Among the most outstanding characteristics that were achieved in the research are the prefixes and suffixes and their syntax to make it look like an African language. All drawings are based on the art of Russ Manning.
