    My name is Larry Rogers and I am an independent scholar of linguistics and anthropology with a BA in Linguistics from Michigan State with coursework in anthropology and archaeology from Michigan State University and Michigan Technological University. The degrees of Dr. David Kaufman, of which this present work is a clear (and typical) reflection: Ph.D. Linguistic Anthroplogy, University of Kansas, 2014 M.A. Linguistics, San Jose State University, 2002 B.A. International Studies, Monterey Institute of International Studies, 1995 Though my specialization is in the linguistics of all logographic writing systems, I have also read many dictionaries and grammars and linguistic and anthropological dicussion relating to various Native American peoples. I have done much (unpublished work) studying and working in Ojibwe, Klamath-Modoc, and of course the logographic scripted Classical Mayan. I bought this book and just received it in the mail. I...

The Wikipedia article "Biloxi people" would have us suspect that there might be some relationship between The Mound Builders and the Biloxi, and at least I remember having read in both academic and popular works that there are some Native American peoples of North American suspected to be descended from the rulers of the Mound Builders, inasfar as that can even be used as a blanket term. So that's of notable interest for a larger view of Native American studies. Otherwise, the Biloxi language and people are far southern outliers of the famous and large Siouan language family of the north Great Plains. The dictionary is technically a Biloxi - English glossary with various notes, with a secondary English - Biloxi listing without the notes. It has various preface and appendix material. The entire work is clearly of high merit as to linguistic and anthropological erudition. Now perhaps you will ask, "Why should I buy this dictionary?" Well, there's many dictionaries of Native American languages. But do the authors have Master's in Linguistics or a PhD in Linguistic Anthropology? It makes a lot of difference, friend, and it's not easy to summarize in a book, let alone a few sentences. Modern linguistics degrees from compentent and sizable faculty are very powerful and overlooked things. There is a lot to languages.< Less
