Description: Haas' Gwich'in file consists predominantly of several very extensive handwritten lexica taking up many boxes, including divisions into grammatical categories (e.g. verbs, nouns) and analysis of tone, found in Series 9. They are in a very fragile state, and appear to have been derived from the field notebooks of Edward Sapir, as indicated by the orthography used. Also in Series 9 are details of the Gwich'in dialects described, comparisons with Deg Xinag, and a Swadesh list. Gwich'in is discussed with Victor Golla and E. S. Furniss in Series 1.
