Letter Writing and Language Change

Edited By Anita Auer, Daniel Schreier, and Richard J. Watts

This book "challenges the assumption that there is only one 'legitimate' and homogenous form of English or of any other language" and "supports the view of different/alternative histories of the English language and will appeal to readers who are skeptical of 'standard' language ideology."

Title: Dictionary of the Klamath Language
Subtitle: Klamath - English Contribution to North American Ethnology Vol. II, Part II.
Written By: Albert Samuel Gatschet
Series Title: LINCOM Americana 24
Description:

The present Dictionary contains the lexical portion of an Oregonian language never before reduced to writing. The Klamath or Máklaks language is spoken in two dialects, that of the Klamath Lake Indians, or É-ukshikni, and that of the Modocs. No obstacle prevented the gathering of the terms of bot dialects into one and the same word-list, because the dialects differ but slightly, though more in their lexical than in their grammatical forms. But aside from these minor discrepancies of speech, it would be wrong to suppose that the language of the Klamath Lake Indians, or that of the Modoc Indians is entirely homogenous within itself. Every class or cluster, band or settlement of Indians has a few terms peculiar to itself, or some words used in other acceptations than observed among its neighbors (re-edition; originally published 1890, Washington, written in English).
