About this title


First published in 1980, this volume is the definitive dictionary and linguistic analysis of the Navajo language. In this revised edition, the entire grammatical section has been rewritten to include a wide range of linguistic information that will establish a foundation for future work in Navajo.

"[Robert Young and William Morgan] have made it possible to educate, communicate, inform, and entertain through the written Navajo language."--Navajo Tribal Council

"[The Navajo Language] is a unique contribution to American Indian linguistics and lexicography. [It is] a reference work of the highest quality, a book that is a rich resource for Navajo speakers, people learning to speak Navajo, and scholars interested in Navajo and Athabaskan linguistics."--International Journal of American Linguistics

From the Back Cover:

This, the Second Edition of The Navajo Language: A Grammar And Colloquial Dictionary, includes a wide range of additional linguistic information, developed since the appearance of the First Edition, in 1980. The entire grammatical section has been revised and rewritten, in expanded form, and additions to the appendix now include an article on Comparative Athapaskan along with a Navajo / Pre-Proto- and Proto-Athapaskan root inventory, based on comparative linguistic data prepared by linguists at the Alaska Native Language Center, University of Alaska; a stem index cross-referenced to the root inventory; a separate Navajo noun inventory, arranged by type; and an exhaustive set of model paradigms to which the verb prefix inventory, in the main body of the grammatical section is cross-referenced.
