Gwich'in Junior Dictionary (Dinjii Zhuh Ginjik Nagwan Tr'ilsaii)

by Peter, Katherine


The Native language of Arctic Village, Birch Creek, Chalkyitsik, Circle, Fort Yukon, and Venetie is documented in this concise lexicon intended for use in bilingual classrooms. It is not a complete dictionary, but only a sampling that will enable students to look up the Gwich’in equivalents of common conversational English words and phrases. An introduction to the Gwich’in spelling system and sounds and a guide to reading the languages are included. Produced in cooperation with the National Bilingual Materials Development Center. Illustrated.

Language: Gwich'in (GA26)
