Book cover

First Page:

[Transcriber's Note:

This is an updated version of an e text originally produced in November 2006; see end of text for additions and corrections.

The e text consists of two separately published books:

Spellings for the Schools in the Chipeway Language Sketch of Grammar of the Chippeway Language

In the first book (Spellings...), the hyphen is used to separate syllables. In the second book (Grammar...) the hyphen seems to represent the glottal stop.

In the word lists of the first book, the first entry in each column was sometimes but not consistently capitalized. This capitalization has been retained, whether or not the e text layout replicates the original.

A few punctuation marks in the paradigms and vocabulary lists have been supplied or regularized. Other errors and anomalies are listed at the end of the e text. Bracketed text is in the original unless otherwise noted.]
