Fieldwork and research to create a dictionary of Cahto (Athabaskan-Eyak-Tlingit), a dormant Native American language of Medocino County, California.

This Language Description and Infrastructure project will create the first dictionary of the Cahto (Kato) language of Mendocino County, California (Athabaskan-Eyak-Tlingit family). This dictionary will be made available in printable electronic formats; through a searchable online Webonary interface; and as an Android app. The project will build on the applicant's previous work that has focused on building a comprehensive database of lexical forms from the published and unpublished resources on the language, enriched where possible with forms given by living rememberers. This fellowship would support the reworking of the existing database into headwords in a standard practical orthography, further editing the entries, and the editing of front and back matter. The proposed dictionary will include as appendices a listing by semantic categories and a morpheme list cross-referenced to the scholarly literature on Proto-Athabaskan and Proto-California-Athabaskan. A printable dictionary of the Cahto language, useful to tribal language learners, regional historians, and scholars alike, is the goal of this fellowship. (Edited by staff)
