Languages of North, Central, and South America. A Survey of Materials for the Study of the Uncommonly Taught Languages.
Johnson, Dora E.; And Others
This is an annotated bibliography of basic tools of access for the study of the uncommonly taught languages of North, Central, and South America. It is one of eight fascicles which constitute a revision of "A Provisional Survey of Materials for the Study of the Neglected Languages" (CAL 1969). The emphasis is on materials for the adult learner whose native language is English. Languages are grouped under the general headings of North and Central America, and South (and Lower Central) America. Languages are further classified under the following headings: Arctic, Azteco-Tanoan, Macro-Algonquin, Macro-Siouan, Na-Dene, Hokan, Oto-Manguean, Penutian, Keres, Tarascan, Andean Equatorial, Macro-Chibchan and Macro Ge-Pano-Carib. Under each language heading, the items are arranged as follows: (1) teaching materials, (2) readers, (3) grammars, and (4) dictionaries. Annotations are descriptive rather than critical. Wherever possible each entry contains the following bibliographical information: author, title, place of publication, date and pagination. Reprints have been noted, and accompanying tapes and records listed where known. (Author/AMH)
