Abstract:

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 from Mrs. Fielding's speech it is
possible to recover a significant vocabulary in Modern Mohegan as it
was spoken in the early years of the last century. The application of
known phonological correspondences between the Mohegan dialect and the
mutually intelligible neighboring Pequot dialect make it possible to
reconstruct a large number of probably occurring lexical items which
may be added to the total vocabulary of Modern Mohegan. This
vocabulary, in both Mohegan-English and English-Mohegan alphabetical
listings, is presented in the Lexicon along with a detailed
description of the methods by which the data were recovered,
phonemicized, and normalized.(also see the LINCOM webshop: lincom.at).
