The Navajo Sound System

by J.M. McDonough, The Navajo Sound System Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Navajo Sound System books, The Navajo language is spoken by the Navajo people who live in the Navajo Nation, located in Arizona and New Mexico in the southwestern United States. The Navajo language belongs to the Southern, or Apachean, branch of the Athabaskan language family. Athabaskan languages are closely related by their shared morphological structure; these languages have a productive and extensive inflectional morphology. The Northern Athabaskan languages are primarily spoken by people indigenous to the sub-artic stretches of North America. Related Apachean languages are the Athabaskan languages of the Southwest: Chiricahua, Jicarilla, White Mountain and Mescalero Apache. While many other languages, like English, have benefited from decades of research on their sound and speech systems, instrumental analyses of indigenous languages are relatively rare. There is a great deal ofwork to do before a chapter on the acoustics of Navajo comparable to the standard acoustic description of English can be produced. The kind of detailed phonetic description required, for instance, to synthesize natural sounding speech, or to provide a background for clinical studies in a language is well beyond the scope of a single study, but it is necessary to begin this greater work with a fundamental description of the sounds and supra-segmental structure of the language. Inkeeping with this, the goal of this project is to provide a baseline description of the phonetic structure of Navajo, as it is spoken on the Navajo reservation today, to provide a foundation for further work on the language.

Navajo Alphabet

by Native Child Dinetah, Navajo Alphabet Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Navajo Alphabet books, The letters in this Navajo Alphabet book are introduced with beautiful photos, reflecting Navajo culture, tradition and environment. Each Navajo word is spelled out in Diné Bizaad (Navajo language), and its corresponding English translation. Putting the Navajo consonants and vocals into a cultural context, affirms the Navajo Child's language and identity and also introduces non native children to a culture, different from their own. This alphabet chart created by Native Child Dinétah has been used in schools across the Navajo Nation for many years to teach children their native language. It is now made available for the first time for children and adults beyond the borders of Navajoland. An added explanation and short introduction to the Navajo alphabet by Young and Morgan at the end of the book will be helpful for the reader.

The Navajo Verb

by Leonard M. Faltz, The Navajo Verb Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Navajo Verb books, In Navajo, numerous prefixes combine with verb roots to form single words that, in English translation, require a phrase or even a sentence to convey their meaning. Therefore, verb stems and prefixes must be mastered piece by piece to understand the language. This volume leads the reader carefully and systematically through the complexities of the Navajo verb system. By doing so, the book makes Navajo more accessible to all those interested in the American Indian language with the largest number of speakers in the United States.
