Axelrod, Melissa; de Garcia, Jule Gomez; Lachler, Jordan
Sign Language Studies, v3 n3 p296-321 Spr 2003
Reports on the progress of a project to produce a dictionary of the Jicarilla Apache language. Jicarilla, an Eastern Apachean language is spoken on the Jicarilla Apache reservation in Northern New Mexico. The project has revealed much about the role of literacy in language standardization and in speaker empowerment. Suggests that many parallels exist between writing such a dictionary and writing a dictionary of sign language. (VWL)
