Anthology of Menominee Sayings
(Texts & Grammar)
	
Timothy Guile
Meio University
	
"Anthology of Menominee Sayings" is the result of seven years of field
work (conducted during the 1980's) with about half a dozen speakers of
one of Wisconsin's indigenous Algonquian languages. The anthology,
consisting of some 450 short pieces of Menominee oral tradition,
contains weather rules, conventions and taboos surrounding hunting and
fishing, wisdom on the conduct of life, and omens predicting good or
ill. The texts, therefore, tell of the community's interest in the
contour of life from its inception to its preservation and eventual
demise. Each text is accompanied by an English translation and, where
necessary, explanatory linguistic and cultural notes. The notes take
Bloomfield's grammatical description and lexicon of Menominee as a
point of comparison, and indicate phonetic, phonological,
morphological, syntactic and semantic departures from the state of the
language as described by him. The text is useful to students of
culture, folklore, Native American studies, as well as historical and
descriptive linguistics. The volume concludes with a short
descriptive grammar focusing on phonology, morphology and syntax.
