The Tanacross Learners' Dictionary is a resource for students of Tanacross,

of a collaboration between Native speakers, linguists, and language
learners. The dictionary contains about 2000 English headwords with nearly
4500 Tanacross words and example sentences, as well as numerous examples of
verb paradigms. The dictionary includes a brief introduction to Tanacross
grammar, as well as a guide to the Tanacross writing system. As an
additional guide to pronunciation, dictionary users can access nearly 4000
accompanying audio recordings on the Alaska Native Language Center web site

Mrs. Irene Solomon Arnold is the author of numerous books and resources for
the Tanacross language. A Native speaker of Tanacross and trained Native
language educator, she has taught Tanacross language classes at the
University of Alaska Fairbanks and the Yukon Native Language Centre.
