Description: The Salish-Kalispel materials in the ACLS collection consist of materials located primarily in the "Kalispel" section of the finding aid. Two early items are Joseph Giorda's "Appendix to the Kalispel-English dictionary, compiled by the Missionaries of the Society of Jesus" (item S1f.1) and John Post's "Kalispel grammar" (item S1f.2), based in part upon Giorda's material from the 1870s. There is also an undated lexicon by an unidentified author, based on work by Giorda (item S1f.3). In the "Salish" section of the finding aid, see also Teit's "Kalispel and Salish vocabulary" (item S1f.5) and Boas' "Notes on Salish inflections" (item S1f.4), based on Mengarini's "Flathead grammar" from 1861. In the "Thompson" section, Boas' "Suffixes in Thompson, with variants in other Salish languages" (item S1b.12) also contains some Kalispel terms. In the "Quinault" section, Teit's "Quinault vocabulary and paradigms" (item S2a.2) includes a letter to Boas describing his work in Flathead country.
