Atakapa materials, Mary R. Haas Papers
Extent: 0.25 linear feet
Description: Haas' Atakapa file consists mostly of morpheme analysis and lexical comparisons to languages of the Gulf area under the Gulf macrofamily hypothesis, the majority of which can be found in Series 9 under the headings of language families and proto-languages. Of particular interest is a comparative phonology of Southern US and Mexican languages, likely written by Morris Swadesh, in Series 3.
