The Blackfoot Dictionary of Stems, Roots and Affixes

£12.99

Product description

Blackfoot Dictionary of Stems, Roots, and
Affixes, by Donald G. Frantz and Norma Jean Russell.  University of Toronto Press, 1995.  Pbk. still in very good condition but lightly annotated in introduction.  442 pp. 
'A major contribution to Algonquian lexicography', announced the Canadian Journal of Linguistics on the
first appearance of this book in 1989. 
Half a century had elapsed since its much more primitive predecessor, so
it represented a major step forwards. 
This is its second edition, containing many corrections and additions to
its impressive database.  it contains a
wealth of fascinating highly specialised words, such as 'ohpakóyi's', which
apparently means 'a doctor with a hollow eagle bone' (probably just as well we
don't have such a word ourselves), or 'yaamoyi', which means 'having a mouth
that's permanently twisted to one side' (now I reckon we could do with a word like that in English, if only to describe the
newscaster Huw Edwards).
