      MONTREAL. The work on translating of Holy Scripture into the language of the Inuit - Inuktitut, spoken by the Eskimos,
      spoken by the majority of indigenous people of northern Canada, has  continued for 33 years, reported 
      the KNA agency, citing Canada's "RadioVille-Marie".
       
      The Canadian Bible Society has printed five thousand
      copies of the Bible, which will go on public sale on June 3.
       
      Inuktitut is the name of all Canadian Inuit dialects, except
      inuvialuktuna. Inuktitut is the official and most common designation of the Inuit
      languages of Canada.  It is spoken
      throughout the country's northern territory in the areas of Newfoundland and
      Labrador, Quebec, Manitoba, Nunavut, the Northwest territories, and previously on
      the Arctic coast of the Yukon. According to Canada's statistical service, there are about 35 thousand native
      speakers. 
       
      Inuktitut is close to the
      Greenlandic language, which also belongs to the Inuit language group of tghe 
      Eskimo-Aleut language family. The Latin alphabel is
      used as the basis of the Inuktitut writing system, as well as local varieties  based on the Canadian syllabic writing which were created in the XIX century.
