The Nanticoke Language

The entire surviving remnant lexicon of the Nanticoke language can be found in Volumes 1, 31 and 37 of Evolution Publishing's American Language Reprint series:  http://www.evolpub.com/ALR/ALRbooks.html

Most of it is also contained in Speck, Frank Gouldsmith, The Nanticoke and Conoy Indians: with a review of linguistic material from manuscript and living sources : an historical study, Issues 1-2, National Society of the Colonial Dames of America in the State of Delaware, Historical Society of Delaware, 1927.  (Unfortunately, I can't find this work online and the used editions start at around $80--for a work of 77 pages!  It's surprising that nobody has reprinted this work in an affordable edition.)

Re: The Nanticoke Language

Good post I think Murray's vocabulary is the Choptank Dialect. I have a copy that I'm going to put up here someday. big_smile

I don't have anger issues...just violent reactions to B.S.
