Title: The Mutsun Dialect of Costanoan Based on the Vocabulary of de la Cuesta
Written By: J. Alden Mason
URL: www.lincom-shop.eu
Series Title: LINCOM Americana
Description:

A century ago Father Felipe Arroyo de la Cuesta collected a mass of 2884
words, phrases, and sentences of the Mutsun Indians, spoken at his mission of
San Juan Bautista near Monterey, California. He also composed a grammar of
the Mutsun language, a branch of the Costanoan linguistic group.

The present paper consists of two parts, first an exposition of the etymological
and morphological elements upon which the structure of the language is based,
and second of a list of the various stems of all classes found in the material
(Re-edition; originally published 1916 in Berkeley; written in English)
