An illustrated vocabulary presents approximately 275 Yurok words organized topically from the Indian perspective to demonstrate the relationship between Yurok Indians and their social and natural worlds. English terms arranged alphabetically within each topic have two accompanying Yurok entries--one a Unifon spelling, the other having syllable breaks and marked accents. Topics include people, cultural things, baskets, acorns, plants, animals, birds, fish, and food. An introduction explains the role of language in Indian culture and points out differences in styles of thought between Indians and whites. A Yurok Unifon single sound chart is included. (LFL)
