The result of more than ten years of research, A Dictionary of Creek/Muskogee draws on the expertise of a linguist and a native Creek speaker to yield the first modern dictionary of the Creek language of the southeastern United States. The dictionary contains over seven thousand Creek-English entries, over four thousand English-Creek entries, and over four hundred Creek place names in Alabama, Georgia, Florida, and Oklahoma. The volume also includes illustrations, a map, antonyms, dialects, stylistic information, word histories, and other useful reference material. Entries are given in both the traditional Creek spelling and a modern phonemic transcription. A Dictionary of Creek/Muskogee is the standard reference work for the Creek language.

Jack B. Martin is an associate professor of English at the College of William and Mary and a specialist in southeastern Native languages. Margaret McKane Mauldin is an instructor of Creek at the University of Oklahoma.

"This book represents what may be the optimal collaboration for work on Creek, between a linguist . . . and a native speaker. . . . The compilers of this dictionary have done a splendid job, providing maps, pictures, and illustrations that enhance the pleasure of consulting it."—Anthropological Linguistics

"Any tribe that is considering publishing a language dictionary would do well to browse this book as a possible model for the format."—American Indian Libraries
