Makah Project

  This webpage contains information about my ongoing project on the Makah language, spoken on the Olympic Peninsula in Washington State. I will update this page on a regular basis.
  This project assembles fieldwork data gathered principally by William H. Jacobsen, Jr. from the 1960s onward. This is supplemented by data from several other sources.
  The project aims to assemble, analyse and translate a collection of texts, based on Jacobsen's fieldnotes (Index of notebooks) and the associated recordings. and to compile a comprehensive dictionary based on all available materials. Samples of these materials are available at the links below.
