IUT’s newest publication on Inuktut grammar, Inuktut Uqausiliurut, focuses on the meaning and function of affixes. A challenge with Inuktut dictionaries is that most words can be expanded or changed by adding one or several affixes to produce a wide range of different meanings. Inuktut Uqausiliurut provides detailed information on over 200 affixes and their variations, including their meaning in English and examples of words in which they appear.
