Klallam Dictionary

University of Washington Press
With the help of elders, educators, and tribal councils of the Klallam Tribes at Elwha, Port Gamble, and Jamestown, Washington, and Becher Bay on Vancouver Island, Timothy Montler has compiled a comprehensive dictionary of the Klallam language. It includes over 9,000 entries, a brief grammatical sketch, and numerous indexes, along with a wealth of cultural information. Klallam is the language of the people whose ancestors lived at Tse-whit-zen, the largest archaeological site in Washington. An endangered language, it is being revived through the efforts of the Klallam Language Program.
Rich in authentic cultural content and detailed linguistic analysis, this comprehensive work is an important legacy for the Klallam people and an excellent contribution to research on Salish languages. Donna Gerdts, Simon Fraser University
Timothy Montler is a professor at the University of North Texas. He is the author of many articles and books on Native American languages.
