The most comprehensive Yup’ik dictionary in existence, the second edition of this important work now adds extensive research on Central Alaskan Yup’ik, enhancing the forty years of research done by Steven A. Jacobson on the Yup’ik language and dialects. Over these decades, Jacobson has combed through records of explorers, linguists, missionaries, and anyone who has come in contact with the actively migratory Yup’ik people.

Combined with information from native Yup’ik speakers, that research has led to a richly detailed dictionary that covers the entire language and all its dialects. The dictionary also offers sections on Yup’ik spelling, early vocabulary, demonstrative words, and important intersections of Yup’ik language and culture such as the kayak, dogsled, parka, and old-style dwellings.
