This collection of 17 documents about the Nuu-Chah-Nulth covers a period from about 1780 to 1990. The works in collection are roughly divided between the northern, central, and southern Nuu-Chah-Nulth tribes of Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada, and the Makah, a subgroup living on the Olympic Peninsula at Neah Bay, Washington State in the United States. Major studies in this collection include: Drucker, Colson, Swan, Koppert, Sapir and Swadesh, Arima and Dewhirst, and Reniker and Gunther. Other ethnographic topics discussed in this collection are: the girl's puberty ceremony and potlatch; Makah games; an analysis of the Nuu-Chah-Nulth wolf ritual; changing marriage patterns over a one hundred year period (1860-1960), and an account of a modern (ca. 1970s) Nuku-Chah-Nulth community (Vancouver Island) in historical perspective

Quantitative approaches to linguistic diversity : commemorating the centenary of the birth of Morris Swadesh( Book )

10 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Quantitative methods in linguistics, which the protean American structuralist linguist Morris Swadesh introduced in the 1950s, have become increasingly popular and have opened the world of languages to interdisciplinary approaches. The papers collected here are the work not only of descriptive and historical linguists, but also statisticians, physicists and computer scientists. They demonstrate the application of quantitative methods to the elucidation of linguistic prehistory on an unprecedented world-wide scale, providing cutting-edge insights into issues of the linguistic correlates of subsistence strategies, rates of birth and extinction of languages, lexical borrowability, the identification of language family homelands, the assessment of genealogical relationships, and the development of new phylogenetic methods appropriate for linguistic data.
