Paul Pigott's Research

Paul Piggott is back in town for more research.

Piggott is a CBC reporter on a leave of absence.

He is doing a study about sea ice in Inuktitut for Memorial University in St. John’s.

He started the research last year by interviewing Inuktitut speaking elders.

Piggott interviewed 13 elders in 4 of the north coast communities.

He gathered 125 different Inuktitut words.

Piggott plans to travel to Hopedale, Makkovik, Postville and Rigolet next week for more interviews.
