A Database of Mutsun, an Extinct California American Indian Language

The transcription and encoding of field notes on the extinct language of the Mutsun, a California Indian tribe, resulting in a text database and a lexical/dictionary database, to be available also in print.

This project will encode all archival information about the extinct Mutsun language into two databases. Mutsun is a Costanoan Native American language, spoken in the San Francisco area until 1930. Several early linguists recorded vast quantities of information about Mutsun, but this information, although on microfilm, is inaccessible because it is in the form of unanalyzed fieldnotes, primarily handwritten. The project will enter all of the archival information into an annotated text database and a dictionary database, producing a hard copy dictionary and hard copy annotated text publication as well as searchable databases. These products will be of great benefit to the Mutsun people, to other Native American groups, and to linguists.
