The result of more than ten years of research, "A Dictionary of Creek/Muskogee" draws on the expertise of a linguist and a native Creek speaker to yield the first modern dictionary of the Creek language of the southeastern United States. The dictionary contains over seven thousand Creek-English entries, over four thousand English-Creek entries, and over four hundred Creek place names in Alabama, Georgia, Florida, and Oklahoma. The volume also includes illustrations, a map, antonyms, dialects, stylistic information, word histories, and other useful reference material. Entries are given in both the traditional Creek spelling and a modern phonemic transcription. "A Dictionary of Creek/Muskogee" is the standard reference work for the Creek language.

"Any tribe that is considering publishing a language dictionary would do well to browse this book as a possible model for the format."-American Indian Libraries * American Indian Libraries * "This book represents what may be the optimal collaboration for work on Creek, between a linguist . . . and a native speaker. . . . The compilers of this dictionary have done a splendid job, providing maps, pictures, and illustrations that enhance the pleasure of consulting it."-Anthropological Linguistics * Anthropological Linguistics *
