Editorial Reviews

Review

'The author, a linguist, has produced an exceptional work, easy to use and beautifully produced, that will appeal to various audiences - linguists, Delaware people, culture historians, and anyone interested in American Indian languages.'

(D.R. Parks)

'In short, O'Meara's Delaware dictionary is the product of many years of dedicated and painstaking research, as well as the most recent example of an increasingly sophisticated Algonquian lexicographical tradition. It is designed with all potential users in mind, whether academic or Native. We are very fortunate to have it.'

(Paul Proulx, National Coalition of Independent Scholars)

'This work is an outstanding addition to the rapidly growing list of Algonquian language dictionaries that have appeared in the last few years ... We are all deeply indebted to O'Meara for his valiant and painstaking efforts to capture so much of this language before it comes to its untimely end as it sadly seems destined to do.'

(Marc Picard)

‘[This dictionary] belongs on the shelf of every Algonquianist and in the hands of everyone who cares about the Delaware language.’ (Anthony P. Grant)

This is thee resource for learning Lenape short of learning from a speaker.This dictionary is the resource we use in our Lenape Immersion Camps as taught by Glen Jacobs and Bruce Stonefish. We need to get it back in print.
