Abstract:

This is a companion volume to the editions of Ira D. Blanchard’s books that document the Southern Unami dialect of the Delaware language (Lenape; ISO code unm) as spoken in the years from 1834 to 1842: A Harmony of the Four Gospels in Delaware (Goddard 2021a) and The Delaware Primers of Ira D. Blanchard (Goddard and Beckwith 2021). It is designed to be used with A Grammar of Southern Unami Delaware (Lenape) (Goddard 2021b). The glossary includes virtually all the words from Blanchard’s texts. For each word, a representative sample of forms is given with definitions, grammatical information, and text locations, as well as references to other sources on the Delaware language.

Southern Unami is the heritage language of the Delaware Tribe of Indians (Bartlesville, Okla.) and the Delaware Nation of Western Oklahoma (Anadarko).

Miles Beckwith has a doctorate in linguistics from Yale University and is Chair of the English Department of Iona College, where he teaches courses on literature, language, and linguistics.
