About this app

The New Lakota Dictionary (NLD) Mobile App is the best way to look up Lakota words, hear pronunciation, and view thousands of example sentences while on the go. It’s the ultimate electronic Lakota learning and reference tool.

• 31,000 entries
• 53,000 sentences
• Male and female voices for audio
• Consistent phonemic spelling – Standard Lakota Orthography
• Superior cross-referencing capabilities
• Faster and more responsive than online versions
• Works offline, without active data connection
• Built-In lemmatizer searches for conjugated verbs and word forms
• Over 400 native speakers involved in its development and review
• Regularly updated
• Accurate and reliable
• Fun to use and explore
• An excellent self-study investment

"The lemmatizer is one of the biggest advantages of the app when compared to the printed version of the NLD. Lakota is a highly agglutinating language. Affixes are added to words all the time, so unless you know the stem of the word with affixes, you won’t be able to find it in the dictionary. The app does that for you. If you type in e.g. waŋwíčhablake the app will show you the entry waŋyáŋkA."

It was a great resource--when it worked. It frequently crashed on my old phone and now it won't complete its installation on my new Galaxy A52 5G. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling several times, but to no avail. It either doesn't succeed when trying to contact the server, or it crashes after downloading data. It never gets past "unpacking data". I'm very disappointed.

This used to be a great app, been using it for YEARS (when it cost $19.99). Then one day the app was empty with a window asking, "Download dictionary?", so I pushed "yes". After the window indicates that it has downloaded 100%, I get an error message. I've done this over and over to no avail. Reading some of reviews, looks like uninstalling it then reinstalling it won't work. :(

The app seems to be working now. Although deleting past search words works somewhat differantly than it did before the update l guess it's something I can learn to live with. I've had this app for a long time and loved it before the update. The problems I've experianced with the transision to the updated version is what's keeping me from giving a higher rating. Thanks to LLC for working to fix these issues.
