Message 2: Questions about Maliseet-Passamaquoddy

Subject: Questions about Maliseet-Passamaquoddy

Dear All,

I need, again, the help of someone competent in a not so frequently
spoken language, Maliseet-Passamaquoddy (Eastern Algonquian), spoken
five reserves along the Saint John River in New Brunswick, as well as
in Viger, Quebec. I have perused the reference material that I could
get a hold in Scandinavia, Maliseet-Passamaquoddy Verb Morphology by
David F. Sherwood (1986). However, the material does discuss the
counting system or numerals of the language and this is one of the
topics I am working on. I also have some questions about the verb
morphology about things I did not quite understand from the book.

I will summarize if there is interest.

Thank you very very much in advance!

Best wishes,
