Mohegan, a dialect of the Mohegan-Pequot language of Southern New
England, was one of the major Algonquian languages of Connecticut,
spoken from the Connecticut River in the west to the Thames River in
the east and from central Connecticut south to Long Island Sound from
at least the 13th century through the 1800s. Its last speaker,
Mrs. Fidelia A.H. Fielding, died in 1908. From detailed professional
phonetic recordings of lengthy texts in Mrs. Fielding's speech we have
adequate data to effect a reconstruction of the language as it was
spoken in the early 1900s. The present volume gives the reader an
account of the phonological, morphological, and syntactic structures
of the language, as well as a summary of the position and development
of Mohegan and the other Mohegan-Pequot dialects (Pequot, Shinnecock,
and Montauk) within the Eastern Branch of the Algonquian language
family. Lexical data and sample texts are provided.(also see the
