ARCTIC 498 – Conversational Inuktitut

This Winter, the Arctic Studies Program is excited to offer ARCTIC 498: Special Topics – Conversational Inuktitut.

Inuktitut is an Indigenous language in North America spoken in the Canadian Arctic. It is part of a larger Inuit language continuum stretching from Alaska to Greenland, and is a polysynthetic language, which means that words tend to be longer and structurally more complex than their English or French counterparts.
