A. OJIBWE AS A SECOND LANGUAGE

Lakehead University offers introductory courses in two of the main dialect variants found in Ontario. Severn Ojibwe (sometimes also referred to as 'Oji-Cree,' and as Anihshininiimowin in the language itself) is the primary dialect spoken in much of Ontario north of the Berens River. It is frequently written using the traditional syllabic writing system; a wide variety of orthographic traditions, both alphabetic and syllabic, are used in Ojibwe dialects. Western Ojibwe refers to the dialects of Ojibwe spoken in communities from approximately Sault Ste. Marie in the east, along the north shore of Lake Superior, and through the Lake of the Woods area.
