Dictionary

Welcome to the dAXunhyuu Learner's Dictionary! You can look up useful Eyak words and phrases here by clicking on the alphabetical letter headings that match the English word you're trying to find a translation for. You can also use the search box at the upper right side of the top menu to look for words. This search method will also bring up results from other pages on this site. You'll see a LISTEN link to the right of all entries that currently have audio files.

This is a growing collection. New entries and matching audio files are being added every week and you can have a hand and voice in making the dictionary bigger and better. Whenever you have a suggestion for entries that aren't in the dictionary, send in your requests to eyakpeople@gmail.com and help build this living resource. You can also be a language model and record some entries. Email us for more details. It would really be great to HEAR (from) you!
