Q: Is there an Algonquin Dictionary avalable - online
or in print ?
A: There are a few Algonquin vocabulary pages linked from
http://www.native-languages.org/algonquin.htm. For a
this book is good,
but it's out of print and can be hard to find. It's also only Algonquin-English, so
that's not so good if you don't know any Algonquin
yet. You might do best of all with an Ojibwe
dictionary, which are cheap and easily available.
Algonquin is extremely close to Ojibwe--it's like
Spanish and Italian--the people can understand much of
each other's speech. You can certainly use an Ojibwe
word to pretty easily look up the Algonquin word in
the Algonquin-English dictionary. Here's a
dictionary very inexpensively.
Hope that helps, good luck!
