Inuit Uqausiqatigiit

Inuit Languages and Dialects

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