Dena'ina (Tanaina) Noun Dictionary.
Kari, James, Comp.
This noun dictionary of the Athapascan language covers all dialects of the Tanaina language of the Cook Inlet region. It has been prepared for the Dena'ina people to help maintain their language and culture. The introduction explains the Dena'ina dialects and the phonological system of the Dena'ina alphabet. The dictionary is organized into semantic categories and most words can be located by thinking about the subject area a word most naturally belongs to. A Dena'ina-English index is appended listing all the Dena'ina entries alphabetically along with the page number on which each word appears in the subject chapters. The dictionary contains 30 chapters and about 5,500 Dena'ina entries. (NCR)
