Anishinaubae Thesaurus by Basil H. Johnston
Book DescriptionThe Anishinaubae (Chippewa/Ojibwe) language has a beauty in the spoken word, a deliberate rhythm, simplicity, and mysterious second meanings. When Basil Johnston began teaching the Anishinaubae language in the late 1960s, there were no related manuals or dictionaries suitable for beginners. To fill this void, Johnston wrote a language course and a lexicon to fill the need for course materials. Now he has broadened this labor by compiling "Anishinaubae Thesaurus", which goes even further to fill a deep cultural and linguistic void. This thesaurus contains a useful sampling of the 400,000 words that comprise the Anishinaubae language, and it is intended to be a practical reference tool for teachers, translators, interpreters, and orthographers.
