ACKNOWLEGMENTS

This work would not be possible without the help and encouragement of many people, most especially my family, Jim, my husband who loves to edit, and my children, Megan, Ian, and Maddy.

I have to thank my professors, Dr. Maureen Hogan, Dr. Lee Haugen, and Dr. Lawrence Kaplan. As Maureen always says, “All the Best”! Thanks Lee for being in my graduate committee. Larry, thank you so much for giving me the idea to adapt “Inupiaq Phrases and Conversations” to King Island dialect. I also have to thank Dr. Ray Barnhardt for all of his encouragements to complete this project.

I have to thank Elders, Rose Koezuna, my sister and the late Cecelia Muktoyuk, my teasing cousin, for always being there to help me. They truly are the best! Thanks to Helen Pushruk and Elena Spivey for helping me. I want to say quyana to Maria and Sigwein Omiak who live at Teller. I want to thank my niece Marilyn Koezuna-Irelan who listened to my ideas and thoughtfully gave her insights.

This project is for all the young King Island people who so dearly want to learn their language.
