Customer review:
Let’s face it, dictionary-making is one of the most difficult linguistic tasks when working with any language. The decisions are complex and often require detailed analysis far beyond the skills of a single linguist. This dictionary is a true team effort and has been decades in the making. Much of the team membership are native speakers of Hopi as well.
This dictionary is a truly outstanding effort and deserves a place in every library of languages and linguistics, whether the library is focused on the languages of Native America or not. There are only a couple dozen dictionaries in the world that clearly exceed the exhaustiveness and production quality of this volume. This dictionary of Hopi is the very best dictonary to have been produced for ANY language of Native America. It is superior to dictionaries of the majority of minority languages of Europe as well.

As far as size and production quality, it exceeds most “college-level” dictionaries of English, although not quite as large as the “unabridged” dictionaries of English.

With the imminent extinction of many of the languages of the Americas, this dictionary is unlikely to be superseded as the dictionary we all wish we could make.
