Inuktitut Linguistics for Technocrats

If you are having trouble viewing this document:To properly view this document, you will need to have a browser capable of displaying Unicode. As of late 2004, most recently developed browsers can do this if they have access to a Unicode font. We have chosen to use uniquely fonts common to all versions of Windows and Mac equivalents. And if your browser is configured to use a Unicode Inuktitut Syllabic Font for the Canadian Unified Syllabary, such as Pigiarniq, then you will be able to see all of the text. Unicode Inuktitut fonts can be found here.

If the characters of the following two lines look similar, you should be all right:

ᓄᓇᕗᑦ   ŋ ɟ ɬ ɴ ø   →

We will look into solutions for older browsers if this seems to be necessary.

How this document was prepared

We obtained a paper version of this document from Mick Mallon and using OCR technology, captured the text. The text was proofread completely three times during which the colour information, the syllabic text, and the tables were reconstructed by hand. This was rather easy to do, although a little tedious, but we are looking into ways of speeding up the process.
