Product Description

Lakota Grammar Handbook


Together with the New Lakota Dictionary, this pedagogically oriented grammar offers the most comprehensive documentation of the Lakota language to date, providing a self study reference and practice guide for second language learners of Lakota, as well as a reference material for linguistic researchers, Lakota language teachers and native speakers. Based on authentic narratives and dialogs recorded from hundreds of Lakota speakers, this book helps the learner gain a deeper understanding of how native speakers describe their worldview in terms of grammatical structures and cultural patterns.

I don't think I've ever read a better grammar of any North American language (the languages I care about). This is certainly an extraordinary document that should serve as a model for all others aiming to do the same kind of thing: documenting a language in its full richness and detail, but making it all accessible to motivated and sophisticated readers (not necessarily linguists) as well as linguists.

This is the most detailed and accurate grammar of Lakota ever, and will serve as a reference grammar and as a pedagogical grammar for a long time to come.

This book is very helpful for us fluent speaking teachers. It gives detailed explanations and overviews of the sentence structures and conjugation patterns. It also reminds us of a lot of the traditional words that we used to hear from our grandparents when growing up. This brings back good memories and shows how rich our language is.
