Cahto Analyzed Texts Volume 1 - Cultural Texts (Database/Archive/Digital Edition)
Title: Cahto Analyzed Texts Volume 1 - Cultural Texts
Author: Sally R. Anderson
Abstract: This first volume of two comprises the texts as texts, whether full stories, short songs, cultural phrases and prayers. The major sources for such texts are Pliny E. Goddard (1909, 1906; working with Bill Ray), Edwin M. Loeb (1932; working with Lucy (Cooke) Ray, Martina (Ray) Bell, and Gill Ray) and John P. Harrington (1942; working with Martina (Ray) Bell and Gill Ray). The Cahto words are transcribed into the Community's standard writing system, then in the second line broken into major word parts, then glossed according to the breakdown, and then with a whole word gloss below, and finally grammatical category. After this there follows a somewhat modernized translation, the original author's translation, and the original author's word for word translation (if provided). Then finally the original author's transcription of the line(s). In the case of many of the Goddard texts there are two original transcription lines, one from the published text collection (1909) and one from the field notebooks (1906).

Cahto Analyzed Texts Volume 2 - Wordlists with Micro-texts (Database/Archive/Digital Edition)
Title: Cahto Analyzed Texts Volume 2 - Wordlists with Micro-texts
Author: Sally R. Anderson
Abstract: This second volume of two presents data from three sources that are primarily wordlist-like in nature, but include a reasonable number of paradigmatic examples and short sentences. The sources are Goddard's field notebooks (Goddard 1906, working with Bill Ray and Rose Ray), Merriam's Kato vocabulary list (Merriam 1850-1974), and Sapir's brief work with Bill Ray and Goddard (Goddard & Sapir 1907-1908). The Cahto words are transcribed into the Community's standard writing system, then in the second line broken into major word parts, then glossed according to the breakdown, and then with a whole word gloss below, and finally grammatical category. After this there follows a somewhat modernized translation, the original author's translation, and the original author's word for word translation (if provided). Then finally the original author's transcription of the line(s).

Cahto Dictionary - 2021 Web Edition (Database/Archive/Digital Edition)
Title: Cahto Dictionary - 2021 Web Edition
Author: Sally R. Anderson
Abstract: The Cahto (also spelled "Kato") language is a California Athabaskan language of the Eel River group in northern Mendocino county, California. This dictionary is the result of the author's twenty-one years' evening and weekend research on the language, and a final year finishing the dictionary full-time, thanks to NEH funding (see Acknowledgements). This stands as the first dictionary for Cahto, and only the second dictionary for any California Athabaskan language, the first being Golla's Hupa Language Dictionary. The dictionary is comprised of over 4,600 main Cahto headwords and 3,100 variants (mostly inflected forms), extracted from nearly 11,000 forms documented by scholars between the 1850's and the 2000's, but most prolifically in the first decades of the 20th century by Pliny Earle Goddard, J. P. Harrington, Edward Sapir, C. Hart Merriam, Edward Curtis, and others. This 2021 updated edition results from another NEH-funded project analyzing Cahto texts, which has resulted in finding several hundred more forms and variants, and the linking of text examples into a significant percentage of main entries.
