"His passion for Cuban language and culture, his "cubiania," added to an obliged distance from home, the foreigner's resource, so often resorted to in the literature to convey a work with objectivity. And as a corollary of his theoretical study he compiled an extensive glossary, converted today into the dictionary readers have at their hands." Dr. Felix Rodriguez Gonzalez, University of Alicante

"... is a significant contribution to the study of the sociohistory and development of anglicanisms in one of its traditional (but as yet insufficiently explored) breeding grounds. The glossary is also valuable in another important respect: it mirrors the way Cuban culture and society have changed down the years and gives insight into a number of cultural traits which have long remained elusive to researchers." Dr. Antonio Lillo, University of Alicante
