Cree, Language of the Plains : Language of the Plains, Paperback Book

Cree, Language of the Plains : Language of the Plains Paperback


Cree, Language of the Plains explores some of the intricate grammatical features of a language spoken by a nation which extends from Quebec to Alberta.

Although there are five dialects within these geographic boundaries, only the "y" (or Plains) dialect is presented here.

The distinction has been made between, on one hand, learning about a language, or building language awareness, and, on the other hand, acquisition of a language acquisition activities.

Includes tables showing verb conjugation, placement of person indicators, preverbs, connectives, and endings (singular and plural).

There is also a reference grammar and verb list. Standard Roman Orthography is used.
