Description: The majority of Haas' file on Klamath is a card file organizing published work by A. S. Gatschet and de Angulo, with comparisons to the Modoc variety. These lexica can be found in Series 9, along with oversized pages detailing the realizations of the imperative for ‘to listen' and a quotation about Powell's fieldwork in Northern California. Haas also drew comparisons between different languages' (mostly affective) words for ‘cat', of which Klamath was an example (see Series 2, and other work on phonosemantics).
