New Lakota Dictionary - Mobile

Lakota Language Consortium
The New Lakota Dictionary (NLD) Mobile App is the best way to look up Lakota words, hear pronunciation, and view thousands of example sentences while on the go. It’s the ultimate electronic Lakota learning and reference tool.

•\tConsistent phonemic spelling – Standard Lakota Orthography
•\tSuperior cross-referencing capabilities
•\tFaster and more responsive than online versions

•\tOver 400 native speakers involved in its development and review
•\tRegularly updated
•\tAccurate and reliable
•\tFun to use and explore
•\tAn excellent self-study investment

The lemmatizer is one of the biggest advantages of the app when compared to the printed version of the NLD. Lakota is a highly agglutinating language. Affixes are added to words all the time, so unless you know the stem of the word with affixes, you won’t be able to find it in the dictionary. The app does that for you. If you type in e.g. waŋwíčhablake the app will show you the entry waŋyáŋkA.

What's new in version 2.0
Updated version number to 2.0. More than 3,500 additional recordings have been added to the database along with many added and revised entries.
