Inupiaq Dictionary History and Background
From OpenContent Curriculum
- The Inupiaq contains links to each Inupiaq word entered into the system.
- Each word has it's own page with a word, definition, MP3 audio file, and additional relevant information.
- Students, bilingual and bi-cultural teachers, community members and visitors are welcome to contribute.
- Anyone can add words, pages, upload audio files or link the words in glossary form to other projects where needed. It's a wiki ;-)
- Please follow copyright guidelines and give credit to images you did not create yourself by noting this information in the comments section when you upload an image.
- Interested parties may also want to also check UAF's converted 1970 document Alaskool Inupiaq Dictionary, or their useful pronounciation key, but please respect UAF's copyright, and write your own definitions for use here. It is also important to note that pronunciations and dialects are indicated on Alaskool only for North Slope and Kobuk dialects.
- Inspiration for this project comes from Audie Chikoyuk of Marshall, Alaska. See his Learn Yupik Words Project here.
- Thanks to Angie Alston and Ginger Crockett and their students for getting this project rolling.
