Navajo language-learning software to be introduced

A group of linguists, editors and native speakers are starting a
yearlong project to develop the first software system to teach the
Navajo language. The software will be owned by the Cornville,
Ariz.-based organization Navajo Language Renaissance, and will be used
to supplement Navajo language classes on and off the reservation.
Lorraine Manavis, a language professor at San Juan College who is
helping with the software system, said it will not replace classroom
learning of Navajo.
