“A Preliminary Survey of Chinook Jargon Lexical Item Use in the Pacific Northwest”

Today I’m pointing you to a good little read…

A Preliminary Survey of Chinook Jargon Lexical Item Use in the Pacific Northwest” , by Michael Johnson, in:

北海道言語文化研究 北海道言語研究会 (Hokkaidō gengo bunka kenkyū – Hokkaidō gengo kenkyūkai / Hokkaido Language and Culture Research – Hokkaido Language Research Group) No. 15, 183-193, 2017.

Don’t be put off by the long title or the Japanese characters! This short article is in English, it’s not really technical, and it takes a look at how often Chinuk Wawa words are used in real life by Northwesterners.

And you may know more examples than the author was able to find by looking at a few newspapers online 🙂
