I am writing a paper on Salish, its dialects, sub dialects and sub language families. I have found a dictionary of Lootshootseet from the U of W and some tapes from Spokane Falls Comm. College.
Has anyone by chance heard of any other places where one might obtain info on Salish? Or know anything about Salish?
Aaah...Lushootseed! A person after my own heart! You are very brave to do a paper on ANY Salish language.
Lushootseed is a member of the Coast Salishan group of languages, spoken in the Puget Sound. Is Spokane Falls near the Puget Sound? My doctorate was in American Indian Linguistics, and my research was on the Tlingit Indians. I lived with them for a year. While Athapaskan or Na-Dené languages bare no resemblance to the Salishan languages, I can be of some assistance. If you are a guy, Salishan langauges make grown men cry. If you are a woman, they may make you a man
Is this a high school paper or is it a grad level thesis or dissertation?Haʔɫ sləx̌il!
