To help preserve the language while still in daily use, Donald G. Frantz and Norma Jean Russell collaborated on the Blackfoot Dictionary, published in 1989 to widespread acclaim. Now Frantz has produced this companion volume to the dictionary, a description and analysis of the major features of Blackfoot grammar and language structure. Intended to serve a variety of audiences, the first few chapters can be read by laypersons interested in the Blackfoot language, and provide a basis for the more intensive and technical chapters intended for the more advanced student and scholar. Included also is a list of references, an index, an appendix on verb paradigms, and one on phonological rules. Based on decades of research, Blackfoot Grammar will be welcomed not only by those who wish to learn the language, but by all those with an interest in native studies and North American linguistics.
