Makah Alphabet Book.
Makah Cultural and Research Center, Neah Bay, WA.
The book presents the Makah alphabet decided upon in a public workshop held by the Makah Language Program in 1978, before which there was no standard Makah orthography. The 10 vowels and 34 consonants of the alphabet are presented in relation to English sounds. The book groups vowels sounds together but devotes a page to each consonant telling how to produce the sound and giving a series of words containing the sound and the English equivalent of the words. Each page is illustrated with bold black, white, and red drawings. The book contains an English-Makah vocabulary of 165 words. (SB)
