I'm familiar with the JOD slip files for Osage and have worked with many of
them.  I have another project planned to retranscribe and preserve that
collection for Osage. 

Would be happy to participate in this discussion. Thanks for the
organizational effort!

Mark, and all,


1)  I'm familiar with most of the Dorsey files and publications.  In
addition, I'm planning to do a paper on Dorsey's short/long vowel
transcription to parallel the talk I did on his consonant transcriptions
about 3 Summers ago.  This will mostly deal with his use of the "breve"


2)  I've recently retranscribed the 1890 Dorsey Omaha and Ponca text
collection from the Univ. of Colorado Siouan Archives (where it was a DOS
[ascii] file).  It is now in a Microsoft Word file using the Gentium Unicode
font and standard Dhegihanist phonological notation.  This could easily be
converted into the spellings that are taught in the Omaha and Ponca language
programs.  I have also corrected some of Dorsey's many mistakes.  I would be
happy to provide a copy of this file to anyone who wants it.  It is not
perfect as some of Dorsey's original mistakes remain uncorrected.  These
will have to be patched up by someone who knows the language.


I think this workshop is a great idea!


By the way, Mark, congratulations on the grant!

Aloha all, 

Catherine has posted our call for participants in the dictionary roundtable.
I thought I would ask how many of y'all are familiar with the JOD slip file
and associated collections at the NAA-SI? 

Elder Brother John Koontz has seen the collection and originally alterted me
to its existence in the mid-1980s. 

I look forward to visiting with everyone in Joplin.
