Reseña del editor

The Hlingit Word Encyclopedia is a book for learning the Native American language, specifically Hlingit (Tlingit). By reading the myth about the origin of copper, and looking up words and word particles in the self-contained dictionary, learners can absorb grammar while enjoying a traditional tale. It is illustrated, suitable for teen readers and older, and can be used for teaching younger readers. A charming coming-of-age story, spanning two generations. Let’s open the native languages to people of all races to savor. Startling new evidence of ancient language links throughout the world can be found in the dictionary. A mini encyclopedia in the book illuminates American history, human life today, and evolution itself. See how tonal-agglutinative language evolved in the Americas to change world history, and why pyramids relate to language change. Supports a unity of Native American languages through a rich common ancestral word source, leading to a richness of language patterns in the Americas. CD included.

Biografía del autor

Sally-Anne Lambert was born in New Zealand. Her Celtic-English parents gave her a heritage to search. Her upbringing also included being raised as a Samoan and ongoing Samoan stepfamily influence after leaving home. In La'ie, Hawai'i, Sally-Anne learned of other Pacific Island and Pacific Rim languages, through direct contact with people and culture. The journey through culture was extremely rich and personal. From age twenty-six, Sally-Anne began a more focused quest to discover universal principles in linguistics through better understanding of language families and types. She began working on the New Zealand Maori Word Encyclopedia, with some initial help from the New Zealand government and Maori native training programs. A Mayflower descendant, Sally-Anne believes Native American language revival is linked to the fortunes of America. The Hlingit Word Encyclopedia brings together new principles to enlighten world linguistics and move it into the twenty-first century. Both books are intensely practical. Seven other works remain in process.
