This dictionary is a great tool to learn the Lakota language, with complete and precise definitions, supported by many example sentences. Excellent book.
I am learning Lakota and this is the the best dictionary available. The program works wonderfully and the pronounciation is infinitely helpful. Worth it - I have one on my computer and on my tablet!
Wičhóiye wówapi kiŋ lé líla wašté! This dictionary is very good.
Tech support has been very helpful.
Very, very good dictionary with many examples and the pronunciation of the words. I love it, it's magnificent and very powerful.
Excellent et nécessaire outils pour toute personne désireuse de se mettre au lakota. L'ajout d'enregistrements (voix masculine et féminine) est parfait. Seul petit regret, l'absence d'écriture en alphabet phonétique international mais ça ne lui enlève pas sa cinquième étoile.
This tools is a must for everybody learning or using lakota. The sound records are perfect (male and female voices). I just miss the international phonetic alphabet version of the words but it isn't enough for losing the 5th star.
Easy to understand and to handle; to be recommended for everybody interested in the Lakota language.
A really great dictionary! I have used a hard copy of the dictionary and was already delighted about the quality of the dictionary. As one of the others mentioned it’s really one of the best dictionaries available. And I have seen a lot (as I learned Russian, English and French in school, studied Dutch and Arabic and learned Welsh). And now the digital version has topped it all and is even better. The audio examples of the pronunciation is very helpful especially if you are learning the language far away from native speakers. I love it that I have now all example sentences which contains the word I looked up. And that I can “jump” so easy from one word to another word. That makes it much easier to learn the language.
It’s a great contribution to the revitalization of the Lakota language.
Great dictionary and very useful. I had a copy of the printed dictionary but this software provides new hints and nuances so I feel it like supplementary to the book.
I had some problems installing it but the customers support solved all my problems efficiently.
I'm a linguist and have a huge collection of grammar books and dictionaries and so I can say with a little bit of experience at least, that this is one of the finest dictionaries it's possible to get on the market. There is a Norwegian and a Czech dictionary I know of that are of similar quality, but this one ha even more. It has multiple examples of usage for each word. It has a button you can click to actually hear the word you are looking up. It has an optional Lakota keyboard, so you can type in the characters with diacritics you want, but the words are actually normalized, as well, so you don't have to know exactly how something is spelled with the diacritics. You do have to put in the apostrophe, however, for glottal stops. There are other handy features, as well, but these were the most helpful ones to me.
