Carrier alphabet

From LingWiki

Jump to: navigation, search

The Carrier (Dakelh) alphabet was developed in the 1960s by the Carrier Linguistic Committee in Fort Saint James, BC, Canada.

Note: We have tried to find examples that start with each letter, but some letters never occur at the beginning of a word, eg ng. In that case we have given a word that contains the letter.
