In Navajo, verbs are the building blocks of meaning. By adding prefixes to a verb root, one can often generate a complete thought. This dictionary provides conjugations for almost sixty percent of all Navajo verbs with English translations. It is arranged in alphabetical order by the verb roots in Navajo and sample sentences of each verb are included as separate listings.

"Alyse Goodluck Neundorf (1942-2004), teacher, linguist, interpreter, artist, writer and a former 'Miss Navajo, ' was the author of this work on the Navajo verb--the last of her contributions in the field of Navajo linguistics. . . .

"The " Navajo/English Dictionary of Verbs]" lists 350 Navajo verbs in paradigm form, conjugated for the Imperfective, Perfective, and Future modes. It was her intention that it be used both by students of Navajo and teachers of the language."--from the Foreword by Robert Young
