Dena’ina Topical Dictionary

Revised Edition

The only Dena’ina dictionary in existence, the Dena’ina Topical Dictionary is a critical resource for those studying and sustaining this language. With thirty-three chapters, nearly seven thousand entries, and two hundred maps, illustrations, and diagrams, it is one of the most thorough and refined lexicon references for an Alaska Native language. This revised edition adds more than seventy-five new vocabulary entries and provides updates to existing entries. It also includes a new chapter on grammatical terminology and a reconstruction of the Dena’ina clan system.

“Every page is full of gems, and it is easy to spend hours with this dictionary, for someone interested both in comparative Athabascan linguistics and in northern cultures. The richness of the vocabulary in the dictionary is remarkable.”

Keren D. Rice | International Journal of American Linguistics
