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:

  1. While viewing Dictionary Items, you can link to videos in which the same word is used.
  2. 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.
