A Bibliography of North American Indian Speech and Spoken Language.
Osborn, Lynn R.
The "War on Poverty" has focused on the economic, educational, and social disadvantage of great segments of our population. Prominent among the disadvantaged is the North American Indian, living in the mainstream of the dominant culture and in the more isolated setting of the government reservation. One of the basic difficulties faced in efforts to improve the lot of the Indian in today's society is that of communication between the Indian and the non-Indian. Government and private agencies concerned with such matters are turning to the academic community in terms of funded research, curriculum development, and teacher development. To respond more meaningfully to these requests, the scholar must be aware of the investigations of his colleagues, past and present. This bibliography, containing approximately 600 items published between 1810 and 1967, is an attempt to provide a comprehensive listing of resource materials for the people studying the speech and spoken language of the North American Indian.
