Description

The collection of materials for the study of American aboriginal languages is already large. Indian vocabularies, grammars and grammatical notices may be reckoned by hundreds, and every year adds to their number. Among these are to be found many works of permanent value, indispensable to students of the languages of which they treat, a few of disti guished excellence, widely known and highly appreciated as contributions to comparative philology, and many others which, without imparting thorough or exact grammatical or lexical knowledge, have been very useful to explorers, missionaries and others, by facilitatiig communications with savage tribes.
