Comparative Eskimo Dictionary: with Aleut Cognates

Paperback
An updated and comprehensive reference to the Eskimo-Aleut languages spoken from the northeastern tip of Siberia all the way east to Greenland, this easy-to-use volume groups related words from the modern Eskimo languages in comparative sets with their English equivalents. In total, ten dialects are covered - including five Inuit dialect groups, four Yup'ik languages, and Sirenikski-with Aleut cognates provided when possible. Separate sections are devoted to a grammatical overview, including demonstratives, inflectional endings, and derivational suffixes. Indices with both standard Eskimo spellings and English glosses enhance the usefulness of this volume.
