Lawrence Kaplan

MacLean and those who worked with her have consulted with Iñupiaq speakers from across Alaska's North Slope to compile a comprehensive collection of word stems, along with postbases, grammatical endings, and an array of other valuable material. . . . This dictionary will prove fascinating for anyone interested in the Iñupiat and their language.More Lawrence Kaplan quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

What's left is the machinery of a war that, having been called into being by civilians, no longer bears a relation to anything they say.More Lawrence Kaplan quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
