Comments to eBook The Blackfoot Dictionary of Stems, Roots, and Affixes (English and Siksika Edition)
MEGA FREEDY
This is not a small dictionary, quite a number of words in it. The nouns indicate whether the noun is animate or inanimate, which is helpful, since the animacy is not always predictable. The verbs show not only the stem, but also the imperative and several other forms. But there is no grammar section, instead the user is referred to another book, The Blackfoot Grammar. At the end there is an English-Blackfoot dictionary, followed by a Blackfoot pronunciation guide. So it is a useful book.
Adrietius
To my knowledge, this is the only lexicographical resource for this rapidly disappearing language. As such, it is invaluable for anyone seeking information on Blackfoot. A complete English-to-Blackfoot index with both lexical entries and their relevant page numbers follows the extensive Blackfoot-to-English section, wherein the principal forms of words are cited (for instance, the plural and possessed forms of nouns) with relevant tonal changes, to provide all necessary morphological information. Cross-references to similar or derived words are also provided.

Very helpful and accurate. Have increased my knowledge of my people's language one hundred fold since purchasing this!
Eigonn
The book is very informative and helpful in word identification and explanation. It would be nicer to have an easier annunciation explanation.
Macage
This is a wonderful book for learning the Blackfoot Language. I wish that more books would be published like this, as well as audio cds to learn this wonderful language.
Kupidon
It was a gift for my son-in-law and he LOVED it! Thank you so much! And what an easy way to shop for this unusual gift. Thank you, Amazon. I will shop with you again!

I hear complaints from others that things are hard to find in this dictionary, which is true. The Blackfoot language does not follow the format of English, which makes it hard to organize the language into a useful English book. On the other hand,it is great fun to browse around in the book and see what you can find. It is a treasure trove of cultural details. It is useful to look at the part of speech for each word and see how it fits in with the rest of the language, and also to read the usage examples.

If you want to find a specific word and are stuck on that word, you will find this a very frustrating book. You must approach your search creatively and flexibly. Sometimes you will find what you are looking for, and sometimes you won't. You will have more luck with English to Blackfoot than you will with Blackfoot to English.
A little hard to navigate the dictionary ,but with time, you do get what word or words you want from it
