Author: Harlan LaFontaine
Publisher: Minnesota Historical Society Press (2004)
The Dakota language owes much of its expansiveness to its verbs, or action words. Yet until now, students of Dakota have had few resources in verb usage and conjugation beyond nineteenth-century dictionaries compiled by missionaries.
This book provides students of Dakota, Lakota, and Nakota dialects the proper conjugations for 550 verbs. It features clear explanations of Dakota conjugation patterns, as well as extensive Dakota-Engish and English-Dakota work lists.
