This dictionary covers practically all the words generally used by the Canadian Eskimos. A certain number of words used only by local bands of Eskimos have been added on account of their particular interest and usefulness. In this case, it has been taken care to note their local origin, as: Padl. for Padlermuits, Eskimos of Eskimo point, Padlei District.
As there is no infinitive mode in Eskimo, all the verbs are given in the indicative mode, in the third person singular. As a rule when the subject of a verb is a personal pronoun, it is not expressed but included in the verb. For instance: pissuktok, means he, she or it walks. So the verbs have been given in the third person without expressing the subject.Besides the words that have compiled in this dicitonary, new words may be created by the use of Infixes. So a list of infixes has been included.
Pronunciation: Eskimo pronunciation does not present as much difficulty as some of the other Amerindian Languages. The different letters are pronunced mostly as in Latin.
