The Snuneymuxw matierals in the ACLS collection consist of two items. In the "Halkomelem" section of the finding aid, Boas' "Nanaimo, Cowichan, and Lower Fraser materials" (item S2i.1) contain extensive vocabulary and texts with interlinear translations recorded in 1886. In the "Salish" section, Boas' "Comparative vocabularies of eight Salishan languages" (item S.1) includes Snuneymuxw vocabulary derived from this earlier fieldwork. See also "Squamish vocabulary," circa 1888, (item S2h.1,) which includes a comparative vocabulary for numbers in multiple Coast Salish languages.
