Moose Cree Talking Dictionary

I was gifted copies of this dictionary in print by a community member – it’s a beauty. I’m excited to hear the audio now as well (and understand why Moose Cree friends laugh at my pronunciation of sâkahikan, among other things!)

Congratulations to Geraldine Govender, Susan Cheechoo, Eleanor McLeod, Hilda Jeffries, Kevin Brousseau, Jimena Terraza, Anna Luisa Daigneault, K. David Harrison, Gregory D. S. Anderson, who worked together on this outstanding project.

The group has chosen some minor deviations from Western SRO: omitting length mark on ê, and using spaces (instead of hyphens) for grammatical preverbs, but the spelling is phonologically sound and prepared with great care. Beautiful work!
