The Ngaju-Dayak tribes of southern Borneo still adhere to their traditional religion, even though Christian missionary work began there in 1835. Their traditional religion, agama kaharingan, is presently the only autochthonous religion in South East Asia that is officially recognized by the government. Their ritual texts have been written down and are embodied in a priest language ( bahasa sangiang). Martin Baier has compiled terms and examples of this language and presents modern Ngaju and Indonesian equivalents of these, as well as a German translation.
A revised edition of Joh. Warneck's Toba-Bataksch–Deutsches Wörterbuch (Landsdrukkerij, Batavia, 1906). The additions and corrections in this edition are by the late J. Winkler, who, like the author, worked in Sumatra for the Rheinischen Missionsgesellschaft. It also includes a 42 page register Deutsch–Batak, compiled by K.A. Adelaar, aimed to facilitate the use of the dictionary for linguistic purposes.
