It is therefore a work that represents a "very important step in the lexical-semantic studies of the language and lays the foundations for the elaboration of the general dictionary of the Guarani language," the SPL said.
The Guarani Language Academy's functions are to establish the Guarani alphabet, grammar, and dictionary. In October, it presented a Guarani-Spanish-English translator that can accommodate 3,200 entries with the audio record of each of the words.
Guarani is a language spoken in Argentina, Brazil, Bolivia, and Paraguay. The 2017 Household Survey showed that 90 percent of Paraguayans speak Guarani and 40 percent of the population over the age of five speaks it routinely at home.
