The Wiyot materials in the ACLS collection consists of two items. In the "Algonkian" section, "Classification of Algonkin languages" (item A.1) provides a list of Algonquian languages and bands, showing which are dormant and which are extant and approximate number of speakers as of 1935. This item includes an attached note of Edward Sapir to Morris Swadesh on revision in classification of Wiyot and Yurok. In this same section there is also "Wiyot-Yurok and Algonkian comparisons" (item A.2), a list sent by Frank Speck to Edward Sapir to supplement information published by Sapir in 1913.
