The Passamaquoddy-Maliseet Language Portal hosts 3 interoperable databases (videos of natural group conversation, dictionary entries, and audio files), allowing the user to click on a word in a video sub-title to see the entire dictionary entry for the word and then listen to audio recordings of that word as well as example sentences.
The PMPortal links the 19,000-entry online Passamaquoddy-Maliseet Dictionary with an extensive archive of videos of conversations and activities of Passamaquoddy-Maliseet speakers. The Portal is designed as a resource for language learning and research. It can be entered in either of two ways:
- While viewing Dictionary Items, you can link to videos in which the same word is used.
- When viewing Videos, you can link to the dictionary entries of words that appear in the subtitles; in those entries, you may find links to additional related videos.
Choose from one of the navigation menu items to begin – or – find a dictionary term using the site search.
