Subject: Chinook

hlaXayem! Announcing a new discussion group / list covering topics
related to the Chinook Jargon: CHINOOK.

For those linguists, native people, historians, and all others
interested in this still-living pidgin language.

Discussions about all related topics will occur on this list --
origins of the language, proper meanings of words, variations in
usage, current geographical distribution of the language, tutorials,
history, influence of this trade language on local languages, and much
more.

CHINOOK's debut coincides with planning for the first-ever Chinook
Jargon workshop / conference in Mission, British Columbia the 3rd
weekend this September.

Coupled with continued strong academic and tribal interest in the
language, and the development of websites and language programs
dealing with this subject, we offer a very useful resource in the form
of this newsgroup.
