The Navajo Language: A Grammar and Colloquial Dictionary is a must for all those heavily interested in learning more about the Navajo Language...perfecting one's grammar...learning how to put words together properly...and spell correctly. Robert W. Young did an excellent job in putting this book together. This is an ideal linguistic publication to add to your language library.
I received this as a gift from a fan on my Facebook page, "Navajo in the City". As I was skimming through the pages, I was blown away from the wealth of information from A-Z and more; 1069 pages of small print. Young and Morgan used several resources in addition to their own, to compile a plethora of valuable Navajo grammar and definition into one solid 2" book. I'm simply amazed! I highly recommend this book for individuals who are studying Diné bizaad, it will help plenty with proper grammar and spelling. Although I speak Navajo fluently, this book will help me improve my Diné bizaad even more!
I bought the CD form of the Navajo Dictionary. It's a fairly simple program, quickly translating in both directions, along with a calculator showing the navajo equiv's and calendar. All well done, simple and easy to use. My only 'complaint' was that it installs itself into the Start menu; I couldn't use/move an icon to where I wanted it (an MS-Access embedded application). But overall, works great. A nice feature is that in typing in the navajo, it 'knows' the regular keyboard, not demanding typing the navajo keyboard vowels.
