The Ojebway Language: A Manual for Missionaries and Others Employed Among the Ojebway Indians.
Wilson, Edward F.
This three-part volume, originally published in 1874 (?) and reprinted at the request of the Department of Indian Affairs and Northern Development in Toronto, is a typical traditional presentation of the language of the Ojibwa Indians (spelled here "Ojebway" and sometimes referred to as "Chippewa"). The parts of speech (nine) are presented in lists and paradigms in Part I. Exercises for the student, of the grammar-translation type, are presented in Part II. Part III consists of an English/OJibwa dictionary. (AMM)
