Subject: Linguistics
Type:Text
Extent: 1 linear foot
Description: Daythal Kendall gathered together lexica from various published sources of Lenca (including Ephraim Squier) into a computer database, from which he printed a number of different alphabetizations that were never professionally published. These can be found in his Research series (Series 2), and are of great potential use. Both Honduran and Salvadoran Lenca appear to be represented, although speaker names are only partially identified. He also visited Honduras in 1993 partially in an effort to find and interview Lenca speakers. Additional Lenca may be found in Series 1, among correspondence and materials from the Penutian language workshops.

Takelma | Umpqua

Date: 1977-2008
Extent: 3 linear feet
Description: The majority of Daythal Kendall's linguistic and ethnographic research was on Takelma, and so Takelma materials can be found throughout his collection. He built a large corpus of Takelma lexical items from sources including Edward Sapir's Takelma grammar (of which he hand-annotated many copies) and other works by W. H. Barnhardt, J. P. Harrington and others, some results of which were lexical slip files, in Series 8. From his dissertation in 1977 until the 2000s he worked on Takelma grammar and poetry, including many Coyote stories. There is a dedicated subseries to his research file for Takelma that reflects these. Extensive comparisons with other hypothesized Penutian languages can be found throughout, including in the correspondence Series 1. He also photographed Takelma baskets and the traditional Takelma landscape in several visits to the Takelma community, which can be found in Series 9.
