Comox vocabulary

National Anthropological Archives
Non-Chinookan. Perhaps a Salishan language. Note that equivalents are given for "Chinook canoe" and "Kwakiutl canoe"; should be compared first with languages geographically between these two.--Comment by Dell Hymes, November 16, 1960. Probably Comox. (Could compare with Boas' Satlolk Comox).--Laurence L. Thompson, April, 1964.

Confirmed as Comox on basis of terms for "antlers," "arm," "approaches," and "to bark," by John Davis, Department of Linguistics, University of Victoria, Victoria, British Columbia, here 2-8-71. He believes that this may be the raw material for Boas' vocabulary of Catloltq in his report to the British Assn. for the Advancement of Science, 1890, 6th Report of the Northwest Tribes, pages 141-163. (This reference telephoned in afterwards, has not been checked.--MCB)

In hand of Franz Boas. Alphabetically arranged by English. Native term followed by a number, usually of 3 digits.
