Nunavut Arctic College announcement on the Dictionary of Utkuhiksalingmiut Inuktitut Postbase Suffixes

Back in the summer, we congratulated faculty member Alana Johns and her colleagues on the completion of the Dictionary of Utkuhiksalingmiut Inuktitut Postbase Suffixes. Now, Nunavut Arctic College has announced the release of the publication. Nunavut's Minister of Education, the Honourable Paul Quassa, has presented a statement lauding Alana and her colleagues "for their persistence, detail, and dedication to Inuktitut." He closed by urging Canadians from both the north and the south of the country "to continue preserving and promoting Inuit culture through our language and the joys of reading." See the full article for his entire statement and further details.

Congratulations to Alana and the entire dictionary team!
