Letter Writing and Language Change

Edited By Anita Auer, Daniel Schreier, and Richard J. Watts

This book "challenges the assumption that there is only one 'legitimate' and homogenous form of English or of any other language" and "supports the view of different/alternative histories of the English language and will appeal to readers who are skeptical of 'standard' language ideology."

Description:

The Tanacross Learners' Dictionary is a resource for students of Tanacross,
an Athabascan language spoken in eastern Alaska. The dictionary is a result
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
at http://www.uaf.edu/anlc/tanacross/tld.

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.
