In many ways, this book is the first of its kind in the field of Aboriginal language lexicography. Side by side with the talking dictionary Mi'gmaq-Mi'kmaq Online (http://www.mikmaqonline.org/), it is the first Mìgmaq dictionary to be entirely written by a native speaker of the Mìgmaq language with the assistance and guidance of his Mìgmaq Elders, from their own perspective and in their own words. It is also a first of its kind in that it combines the features of a bilingual dictionary with those of a reference dictionary. Instead of providing a reverse word list (English to Mìgmaq) at the end of the volume, our dictionary comes with a stand alone CD-ROM allowing the user to search words both in Mìgmaq and English fields.
