Jesuit to Publish Revised Ho-English Dictionary Fr John Deeney SJ has just revised and enlarged a second edition of his Ho-English dictionary, which he first published in 1978. The Ho language belongs to the Austroasiatic language family, which comprises languages spoken in Cambodia, Vietnam, Indonesia, Laos, Burma, and parts of India. Almost all of the Ho speakers in India live within the areas of Singhbhum and Orissa, which are in the Jesuit Jamshedpur Province. Approximately 25,000 of those are Catholic. The Jesuits in India have developed a full liturgy for Mass and the sacraments in the Ho language. Fr Deeneys new dictionary has more than 400 pages with over 12,000 entries.
