Usually Ships in 2-3 Days


Robert W. Young provides a description of the Navajo language including its relationship with other Native American languages, its phonology, morphology, structure and other features. He also spends some time comparing English and Navajo and the problems that confront a native Navajo speaker in their effort to master spoken English, and the stepping stones a native English speaker encounters learning the Navajo language. As he notes somewhere else: "The pattern of Navajo thought and linguistic expression is totally unlike that of the European languages with which we are most commonly familiar . . . the pattern of thought varies so greatly from our English pattern that we have no small difficulty in learning to think like, and subsequently to express ourselves like the Navajo.
