This website provides Algonquian Language Revitalization participants with an on-line resource to reinforce their classroom learning skills and continue their studies at home.
This study guide will help participants in the Algonquian Language Revitalization project to learn some phrases, become literate in the language, and be able to carry on simple conversations in Mohegan.
The lessons are short selections on words and how to use the grammar. The exercises are repetitions of the sentences and phrases used in each lesson. One of the best ways to learn a language is to hear it. You can hear the Mohegan language spoken on this site.
This on-line study guide includes a growing Mohegan to English dictionary updated regularly, an English to Mohegan Word Finder similarly updated with new words, and the Mohegan rules of grammar.
The Listen section provides selections of prayers, songs, Mohegan names, job names, and animals that you will be able to listen to on your computer and download to your Smartphone, Tablet or MP3 player.
Also provided is a redaction of Fidelia Fielding’s diaries including a transcription of Fidelia’s writing, Frank Speck’s transcription and English translation that has been used for the past 75+ years, and her diaries in our modern orthography.
