Hi, Gretchen,

This is Hewson's book from 1983. It's frozen in this form. I believe there are some minor reconstruction problems in it, and perhaps at some point someone will chime in.

Certainly cognates other than the ones Hewson lists exist. However, tracking them down can be tedious. Articles by Ives Goddard and David J. Costa are good places to look for other reconstructed PA forms and cognates.

Best regards,

Michael

Looks fantastic! Very straightforward, fast, and easy to use, and it's wonderful to see the paper dictionary readily available online. I'll make a blog post about it so it reaches people beyond this list.

From browsing around a bit, it seems like most (all?) of the cognates are from Cree, Menominee, Fox, and Ojibwe. Are there plans to add other modern Algonquian languages, or is that beyond the scope of this project? I don't remember which cognates Hewson listed so I'm not sure how big a task that would be.

The consonant cluster written *çk in Hewson, as in *meçkwikwana and *meçkwitempe˙wa,  has been changed to *rk (Ives Goddard, personal communication, January 2, 2004).
