Spelling Manual For Eastern James Bay Cree Syllabics (Northern Dialect)

ByAlice Duff, Linda Visitor, Marguerite MacKenzie & Marie-Odile Junker

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
People have been writing syllabics using their own style, depending on where they learned the system, which community they come from, how old they are and what pronunciation they use. This manual has been prepared to help people write the Cree syllabics in a more consistent way. Cree Language and Culture teachers and linguists together with the Education Consultants in Cree Programs have been working toward a consistent spelling system for the Southern and for the Northern dialects for many years. The process is still ongoing and this manual is updated periodically. There have been spelling revisions since the first Cree Lexicon was published in 1987, and these revisions have been incorporated into all the dictionaries published in 2004, 2012, 2013 as well as the web version: dictionary.eastcree.org, which contains the latest revisions.
