Kaufmann's Visayan-English Dictionary is one of the best dictionaries ever written for the Hiligaynon language, which is spoken on the Island of Panay and in Negros Occidental. This dictionary of over 1000 pages was first published in 1934 in Iloilo, and is now extremely scarce.
To lookup a word in Hiligaynon, simply type it into the search box. If you are not sure about the spelling of the word, you can use a question mark (?) for a single unknown letter, or a star (*) for a sequence of letters. If you cannot find a word at first, try using stars before or after it.
The search ignores accents and automatically matches "u" with "o" and "i" with "e".
