Re: Ives Goddard's Homepage

Dr. Goddard studied with all the finest Delaware speakers, in both Oklahoma and Ontario, beginning back in the 1960's.  His doctoral dissertation was DELAWARE VERBAL MORPHOLOGY, the finest descriptive grammar of Delaware (both Munsee and Unami) in existence.  For linguists, he is the pre-eminent authority on Delaware and Algonquian.  He retired some months ago, but is still associated (in an emeritus status) with the Smithosonian.  He is actively involved in Algonquian linguistics, even in his retirement.  His work is top-notch.  Thanks for posting this.

I saw a partial vocabulary of his reconstructed 'Proto-Algonquian'. I would like to get my hands on the whole thing. It is a worthy study.

If you're really into that, I recommend these two works, which grace my library:

A PROTO-ALGONQUIAN DICTIONARY, by George F. Aubin, National Museum of Man, Mercury Series, Canadian Ethnology Service, Paper No. 29, Ottawa (1975).  197 pages.

A COMPUTER-GENERATED DICTIONARY OF PROTO-ALGONQUIAN, by John Hewson, Canadian Museum of Civilization, Mercury Series, Canadian Ethnology Service, Paper No. 125, Hull, Quebec (1993).  281 pages.

I've was checking that out. Someone gave me a argument about using that but their argument had no merit so I forgot what it was.
