Upper Koyukon Language Lessons.
The classroom text for teaching the Upper Koyukon variety of Koyukon, an Athabaskan language of Alaska, consists of a series of lessons designed for use throughout a school year (September through June), with three to seven lessons for each month. The language used is relatively simple, consisting primarily of simple statements and questions. The lessons are translated from a Kaska text also designed for school use. Line drawings illustrate the text. A list of 60 additional useful Koyukon expressions is appended. (MSE)
