Fifth Thule Expedition Word List

This book is from the collection Learning Resources

The Danish Fifth Thule Expedition visited the Inuinnait in the winter of 1923/24. Expedition ethnographer Knud Rasmussen recorded approximate 1800 terms in two word lists, and published these lists in the report “Intellectual Culture of the Copper Eskimos” in 1932. In 2017, we worked with linguists and Elders to verify and transcribe a list of Umingmaktuurmiut words, and a comparative list of Umingmaktuurmiut and Kangirjuarmiut words from the orthography used by the Expedition to a modern standard Inuinnaqtun.
