"This book represents what may be the optimal collaboration for work on Creek, between a linguist . . . and a native speaker. . . . The compilers of this dictionary have done a splendid job, providing maps, pictures, and illustrations that enhance the pleasure of consulting it."-Anthropological Linguistics. "Any tribe that is considering publishing a language dictionary would do well to browse this book as a possible model for the format."-American Indian Libraries.
The result of more than ten years of research, A Dictionary of Creek/Muskogee draws on the expertise of a linguist and a native Creek speaker to yield the first modern dictionary of the Creek language of the southeastern United States. The dictionary contains over seven thousand Creek-English entries, over four thousand English-Creek entries, and over four hundred Creek place names in Alabama, Georgia, Florida, and Oklahoma. The volume also includes illustrations, a map, antonyms, dialects, stylistic information, word histories, and other useful reference material. Entries are given in both the traditional Creek spelling and a modern phonemic transcription. A Dictionary of Creek/Muskogee is the standard reference work for the Creek language.
Jack B. Martin is an associate professor of English at the College of William and Mary and a specialist in southeastern Native languages. Margaret McKane Mauldin is an instructor of Creek at the University of Oklahoma.
