ANTHROPOLOGICAL LINGUISTICS 56 NOS. 3--4 appears, if taken literally, to be compatible with most European languages. Another remark that struck me was the claim that the language lacks a copula.

Another issue involves the presentation of the sound system and orthography. Although this section of the introduction addresses both the inventory of sounds and their corresponding representations in the orthography, those familiar with the International Phonetic Alphabet may initially be confused by the fact that the bracketing conventions normally used for allophones and phonemessquare brackets and slashes, respectivelyare instead used for phones and graphemes. Furthermore, when symbols other than those of the orthography are used, a closer adherence to the standard International Phonetic Alphabet would have been preferable, especially since such details are of particular interest to specialists. Nevertheless, despite these slight shortcomings, both the grammatical overview and the presentation of the sound system are more than adequate for language learners. I highly recommend this dictionary to linguists and anthropologists whose research bears on any Inuit dialect or community, as well as to
