A vocabulary of the Po-da-wahd-mih language
About the Project
This manuscript, transcribed around the year 1890 from the original version dating to 1843, is written in a clear cursive hand, although the ink has now considerably faded. The vocabulary contains parallel columns of common English and Potawatomi words, as well as verb conjugations and some phrases. The pages for the first section of the vocabulary (A-Gr) are missing, and the manuscript picks up with English words beginning in “Gu-.” The volume has an old, likely contemporary (but re-backed) mottled paperboard binding with marbled edges.
