Annotation

This book on Inuit sketches the evolution of a native language of the North American Arctic from its historical roots to its contemporary linguistic structure and patterns of use from Alaska to Greenland. Diverse perspectives are integrated into a comprehensive view of native language development, maintenance and use under marginalized conditions due to social transition.
