Dakota Grammar by Stephen Return Riggs, James Owen Dorsey

Dakota Grammar

Description : Long out of print, this classic work on the Dakota language offers extensive information on Dakota grammar and contains a bilingual selection of Dakota myths. Dakota Grammar presents three interrelating aspects of language and culture, beginning with a detailed description of the Santee dialect of the Dakota language and its grammar. The texts of traditional stories, as recounted in Dakota by native speakers, are accompanied by full English translations. Riggs also provides an ethnographic overview of various aspects of Dakota culture and history that enhances the value of this book to all students of Dakota. A worthy companion to both Riggs's A Dakota-English Dictionary (MHS Press) and John P. Williamson's An English-Dakota Dictionary (MHS Press), this volume lives on as an important source for the preservation and revitalization of Dakota culture.
