The earliest substantial vocabulary of Massachusett was that taken by
William Wood and published in his "New England's Prospect" in 1634. It
represents the North Shore dialect of the language and contains over
250 words and phrases in the now-extinct language. Included are the
numbers up to twenty, days of the week, months, and names of important
people and places.

The American Language Reprints (ALR) series is dedicated to preserving
