Date: Fri, 16 Jun 1995 21:15:02 CDT From: "Donald M. Lance" Subject: Re: Cutler's book O Brave New Words! Native American Loanwords in Current English by Charles L. Cutler University of Oklahoma Press, 1994 Twelve chapters -- plus -- Glossary 1. English Loanwords from North American Indian Languages (North of Mexico) (63 pp) Glossary 2. English Loanwords from the Eskimo and Aleut Languages (4 pp) Appendix. English Loanwords from the Latin American Languages (27 pp) He also has a graph of frequency of borrowing from 1600 to 1950. Wars and standoffs seem to have shut off borring completely for a generation or so, with peaks in borrowing coinciding with historical periods when it served Euro-American purposes to deal directly with local residents (e.g., right after "settlement", building the railroad through "Indian lands", etc.) Good book.
