About the Book

The revised and expanded edition of Say It in Fijian presents Albert J. Schütz’s popular introduction to the Fijian language for the first time in an interactive, media-rich e-book format.

Designed for use on most tablets, readers, and smart phones, the e-book includes an extensive selection of audio recordings that make it easy to hear and say simple Fijian words and phrases. For example, as Schütz explains in the book, “the simplest way to begin using Fijian is with the greetings, and most common is:

Nī sā bula. 

Bula means literally ‘health’ or ‘life’. means ‘you plural’, but it is also a respectful way of referring to just one person. The singular form, sā bula, or bula, can be used among close friends, rather in the same way as tu and du are in French and German.”

A masterfully crafted introduction to the Fijian language, the e-book edition of Schütz’s Say It in Fijian allows beginning students and casual visitors alike to quickly acquire a basic familiarity with many common and practical Fijian expressions. In addition, the e-book includes a collection of never before seen historical photographs depicting life and culture of Fiji in the 1960s.
