Hupa Language Dictionary - Na:tinixwe Mixine:whe'

This dictionary contains the Hupa vocabulary -- including many inflected forms of verbs -- that is used or remembered by fluent speakers of the language. Some of this material was collected by linguists and anthropologists, including Pliny Earle Goddard, Edward Sapir and most recently Victor Golla. Much of Sapir's materials were obtained from interpreter Sam Brown, doctor Emma Frank and elder John Shoemaker. Golla collected extensive lists from Ned and Louise Jackson, Minnie Reeves and Rudolph Socktish.
