Wolff's Cebuano-English Dictionary is one of the best dictionaries ever written for the Cebuano language, which is spoken on the islands of Cebu, Bohol, Siquijor, the province of Negros Oriental, and much of Mindanao. This dictionary of over 1200 pages was first published in 1972.
To lookup a word in Cebuano, 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".
