This dictionary is not particiluarly helpful for someone who wants to learn the language. The spelling is inconsistent and doesn't provide help with pronunciation, definitions are often incomplete or inaccurate, no information is provided on ablaut and other features of the words, example sentences and collocations are scarce and their translations inaccurate.

Buechel's dictionary is a typical example of lexicographical work done by the early missionaries among native people; it is a mixture of very careful and very careless work. There is much valuable data in this dictionary, collected by Buechel from fluent speakers, but there is also equally as much, or even more, data that is highly problematic and in fact incorrect. Unless you are a native speaker of the language you won't be able to tell the valuable data from the inaccurate text. During the 20 years of our work on the New Lakota Dictionary (New Lakota Dictionary) over 300 fluent native speaker were involved in checking words from the Buechel dictionary (apart from other sources) and this work revealed that a large percentage of the Buechel dictionary entries are highly problematic, for one reason or another.

Most of the words in this dictionary were actually borrowed from the Dakota dictionary published by Riggs in 1852. The Riggs dictionary contains some 21,000 word entries and Buechel's around 24,000 entries. The two dictionaries overlap in approximately 18,000 entries, and in about 15,500 of them Buechel's definitions are identical to those given by Riggs. Although Dakota and Lakota are very closely related, their significant lexical differences do not always allow Lakota words to be generated by applying Lakota phonetics to Dakota words. This, however, is precisely what Buechel did in a large number of cases.

The Reverend Paul Manhart S.J. who edited the manuscript after Buechel's death, made highly controversial editorial decisions, in particular he changed Buechel's accurate spelling system with a very complex system of diacritical marks. Yet, to make it worse, the conversion was done inconsistently resulting in completely unreliable spelling. In the first edition of the Buechel dictionary, published by the Red Cloud School, the diacritics that Manhart didn't manage to omit were at least legible. In this edition by Nebraska Press they are hardly so and the whole spelling problem is made so much worse.

This Lakota dictionary is unreliable for a number of reasons, some of which are mentioned above. If you want to read more details you can find them in the introduction to the New Lakota Dictionary.

I have had this dictionary for many years and always relied on it. But after seing the New Lakota Dictionary I agree that this one is completely obsolete.
