Ahtna Athabaskan Dictionary.
Kari, James, Ed.
This dictionary of Ahtna, a dialect of the Athabaskan language family, is the first to integrate all morphemes into a single alphabetically arranged section of main entries, with verbs arranged according to a theory of Ahtna (and Athabascan) verb theme categories. An introductory section details dictionary format conventions used, presents a brief history of Ahtna language research, and outlines Ahtna phonology and orthography, dialect patterns, organization of Ahtna-to-English main entries, and verb organization and patterns. The main section is of Ahtna-to-English main entries. A listing of unverified words from other sources, an English-to-Ahtna index, and a list of references are also included. Appended materials include listings and notes on loan words, directionals, numerals, theme formation strings, aspectual derivational strings, non-aspectual derivational strings, topics in Ahtna verb phonology, sample verb paradigms, and kinship terms. A map illustrates the geographic distribution of Ahtna dialects. Contains 67 references. (MSE)
