Text/interior is clean and neat with no marking of any kind. Paginated by section, about 500 pages. From the foreward: This text has not been written for a general audience. It has been written for students taking the fifteen day intensive courses that have been developed over the years in Rankin Inlet and Iqaluit. The key point about thses courses is that they are taught by three instructors among whom the sudents rotate. Each instructor is responsible for a separate module of the course. The modules are independent but inter connected. There are twenty five lessons in each module, one for each session of the course. Each module concentrates on a particular grammatical theme. As the these develop, two things happen,. they naturally involve more and more complex structures, building on those already presented, and the modules begin to interact. The instructors teach independently, but their material overlaps.
