The Beothuk materials in the ACLS collection consist of one item in the "Algonkian" section of the finding aid, entitled "Beothuk-Algonkian comparisons" (item Be.1). This document was prepared for Sapir, copied from Rev. John Leigh's transcription of John Peyton's vocabulary. It compares 45 Beothuk items with Montagnais and Penobscot as well as isolated Micmac, Ojibwe, and Abenaki equivalents.
