Annotated Texts

The following Selkup texts are readily annotated. We offer them both in html (for easy viewing in your browser) and in pdf format.

We use the Charis SIL font, which is downloadable for free. You will get the best results for the html files if you have that font installed on your computer, but other Unicode fonts (such as Gentium or Lucida Sans Unicode which can be found on most PCs and Macs) contain almost all characters needed and will do as well.
