Mobile Resources

Language revitalization depends on creating print, online, and app resources for learners. The more resources that exist for a language, the healthier and more vibrant the revitalization pathway. These resources include textbooks and children’s picture books, mobile apps, dictionaries.

The lemmatizer is one of the biggest advantages of the app when compared to the printed version of the NLD. Lakota is a highly agglutinating language. Affixes are added to words all the time, so unless you know the stem of the word with affixes, you won’t be able to find it in the dictionary. The app does that for you. If you type in e.g. waŋwíčhablake the app will show you the entry waŋyáŋkA.
