Biloxi
Language(s): Biloxi | Ofo | Tutelo | English | Spanish
Date: 1934-1994 (bulk: 1934, 1950s-1960s)
Subject: Linguistics
Type:Text
Extent: 1.0 linear feet
Description: Haas' Biloxi file is mostly derived from John R. Swanton and James Owen Dorsey's published dictionaries, and often appears alongside the other Ohio Valley Siouan/Southeastern Siouan languages Tutelo and Ofo. The most notable original Biloxi material in the collection is an elicitation from Emma Jackson made in the 1930s, with comparisons to the lexica found in Swanton and Dorsey's published dictionaries, found in “Field Notebook: Koasati, Alabama, Biloxi” in Series 2: “Multiple Languages”. Haas also made many comparisons to other neighboring languages in Series 9, under many headings, observed possible Spanish loanwords (Series 2 Subseries "Tunica"), and alluded to Biloxi and neighbors in later correspondence.

Ofo
Language(s): Ofo | English | Biloxi | Tutelo | Spanish
Date: ca.1970s
Subject: Linguistics
Type:Text
Extent: 0.25 linear feet
Description: Mary Haas did not complete her own fieldwork on Ofo, but did develop on the work of John R. Swanton, who produced among other things a Biloxi and Ofo dictionary (the topic of one of Haas' publications, Series 4 Subseries 3). As a result of the similarities between them, Ofo is often included alongside Biloxi and also Tutelo materials, in Series 2 and with comparisons with other languages in Series 9.
