Abstract:
			
Many indigenous American languages face imminent extinction, and the
dictionary, often the only written documentation of these languages,
stands as a powerful tool in preserving them. These essays, written by
leading scholars in Native American language studies, provide a
comprehensive picture of the theory and practice of Native American
lexicography. The contributors discuss the technical, social, and
personal challenges involved with the complex task of creating a
dictionary of a Native American language. The book is also the first
of its kind to address both standard and new issues surrounding the
challenging task of transforming oral languages in general into
written dictionaries. Making Dictionaries will be an invaluable source
for those involved with all aspects of documenting and understanding
endangered languages and for the increasing number of native
communities engaged in language reclamation and preservation efforts.
