Tlingit Verb Dictionary. Part 1, English--Tlingit; Part 2, Tlingit--English.
Story, Gillian L., Comp.; Naish, Constance M., Comp.
This verb dictionary is divided into two main sections. The English-Tlingit section is organized by means of English headings or key words, followed by English meanings which convey the main sense of the Tlingit verb expression in question. A representation of the given Tlingit verb expression is provided, along with one or more examples of it in context. Cross-referencing in the first section is of two sorts: to other English words in the dictionary and to other English expressions in general. The Tlingit-English section lists Tlingit verbs and verb expressions with their English meanings. Tlingit verbs generally consist of a bound root to which derivational affixes are attached, resulting in what is known as the theme. In the dictionary, the stems are arranged in accordance with the Tlingit alphabet, and under each stem, verb expressions are grouped by the theme they contain. Adverbials, locative particles, directionals and pronominals, as found in Tlingit verb expressions, are also discussed in the second section. The appendix provides a grammar sketch which concentrates on Tlingit verb morphology. (CLK)
