Inuit Languages & Dialects

Inuit Languages & Dialects: Inuit Uqausiqatigiit

This is a staggering Pan-Arctic study of linguistic and dialectal differences, from Alaska to the Canadian Arctic to Greenland.

This new edition of wide-ranging work by renowned linguist Louis-Jacques Dorais is a study of the distribution and main characteristics of the following dialects: the Eskaleut family, Aleut and the Yupik languages, Inuit dialects, Alaskan Inupiq, Western Canadian Inuktun, Eastern Canadian Inuktitut (Kivalliq, Aivilik, North and South Baffin, Nunavik, and Labrador), and Greenlandic Kalaallisut.

Dorais includes dialectology, language history, and present-day situations to provide readers with a comprehensive understanding of the similarities and differences between Inuktitut dialects across northern North America and Greenland.
