Product Description


"Ellis. presents a revised edition for the intermediate volume of his three-level Cree language course, originally released in 1963. Building on the fundamentals covered in Spoken Cree, Level I, the text explores the language in the cultural context of a typical northern Cree village. Coverage includes more complex grammatical concepts, including modes, tenses and submodes of the conjunct order; more advanced processes of composition and derivation; and the various forms of the preterit, both independent and conjunct. Extensive use of the syllabary is introduced, with exercises in syllabic writing. The second-level text no longer contains the full glossary; a glossary for all three levels will be appended to Spoken Cree, Level III." Reference & Research Book News, August 2005 "Both Spoken Cree, Level II and its predecessor are an ideal resource for classroom and distance education in Cree for linguistic, anthropology, and Aboriginal studies departments." John Stecklay, Canadian Book Review Annual, 2004

Cree Textbook! 2 Nov. 2010
By ksiezycowy - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a great follow-up to the first volume. I wrote a review for the first (and second) volume here: Spoken Cree: Level One, so this review will be short. For more see my review for the first volume.

This is a great intermediate text for Cree, which continues the usage of the Cree syllabary, which was just introduced in the last lesson of the first volume. The text follows the general feel and system of the first volume as well. Thus if you could get someone in that text, you will with this one as well.
