Chippewa Syllable Book. Reading and Writing Practice for Speakers of the Chippewa (Ojibwe) Language in Wisconsin.
Maulson, Hannah; And Others
This guide is intended for speakers of the Chippewa (Ojibwa) language who read and write in English but would like to develop their reading and writing skills in Chippewa. The writing system used is one developed by Charles Fiero and is only one of many possible standardized writing systems for Chippewa. It was selected by the Chippewa Language Team of the Wisconsin American Languages Project as being the most workable. Vowels, consonants, and syllables are presented by key words and are glossed in English. Some illustrations are included. The lessons are followed by writing exercises. Answers to the writing exercises are included. The text concludes with a reference syllable chart. (LB)
