Wiyot
Language(s): Wiyot | English | Yurok

Subject: Linguistics
Type:Text
Extent: 0.4 linear feet
Description: In 1958, with the publication of the article “Algonkian-Ritwan: The End of a Controversy”, Mary Haas used her materials on Wiyot, Yurok, and Algonquian languages to make a case for their genetic relationship. There are therefore many Wiyot-Yurok comparisons present throughout the collection, especially lexical slip files in Series 9. Much is derived from the work of Karl V. Teeter, to which correspondence with Ives Goddard (Series 1) and others alude. Wiyot also appears at the end of a field notebook from 1966, during which time Haas was conducting small documentations of Californian languages (Series 2).
