This is a topical dictionary of one of the world's most geographically distinctive language areas?the Dena'ina language of Cook Inlet Basin and the Southern Alaska Range. With 33 chapters, just over 6900 entries, and 200 maps, illustrations, and diagrams, this is the most refined topical lexicon for an Alaska Native language as well as for any language of the Dene (or Athabascan) language family. This book places these Dena'ina topical materials at the intersection of ethnology and linguistics.
The 2013 revised edition has more than 75 new vocabulary entries, as well as many corrections to factual and mechanical errors. Also there is a new reconstruction of the Dena'ina clan system and a new chapter on grammatical terminology.
