Wampanoag Grammar

This proposal will result in the production of a complete Wampanoag Grammar. This work will utilize all of the extant documents available in the language from the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. It will be the only grammar that uses the entire corpus of available material. Each term will be fully explained in order to make the Grammar completely accessible to the layperson as well as the linguist. The broader impacts resulting from the proposed activity will be the first Algonquian Grammar that can be used as a template for the production of grammars in other Algonquian languages. This will be particularly useful to linguists and community practitioners working toward the survival and reclamation of Algonquian languages in the United States and Canada. (Edited by staff)
