This 9,000 word dictionary gives information on the Ojibwe language, which is still spoken by over 45,000 people in Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota, and North Dakota. In Canada, the Ojibwe people live in the provinces of Quebec, Ontario, and Manitoba. This work contains data from Eastern Ojibwe and Odawa, two distinct dialects of the Ojibwe language. (Ottawa is known locally as Chippewa in Michigan and Southern Ontario.) In addition to the English-Ojibwa and Ojibwa-English dictionaries, information on dialects, variation, and borrowing is given, and a lengthy guide to pronunciation is included. The author, Richard A. Rhodes, is a professor of linguistics. Formerly at the University of Michigan, he is now at the University of California at Berkeley.
