*Delaware Indian Language of

by C. C. Trowbridge
edited by James A. Rementer

      In 1823, a man named Charles C. Trowbridge went to Indiana Territory
on an assignment from Governor Lewis Cass of the Michigan Territory. His
mission was to obtain the answers to a list of questions pertaining to the
Lenape or Delaware language. After only two and a half months, Trowbridge
collected over 280 pages of handwritten information, making the first
full-fledged treatment of Southern Unami, the dialect spoken by the two
groups still existing in Oklahoma today. This is the dialect that was spoken
in the southern half of New Jersey, southeastern Pennsylvania, and Delaware.
     After almost two centuries, Delaware Indian language scholar James A.
Rementer has now edited and published Trowbridge's extremely thorough study
in full. With well over a hundred pages devoted to verb forms alone, and
extended word-by-word analyses of texts such as the Lord's Prayer and common
phrases, Trowbridge's work serves not only as a detailed grammar but also as
an invaluable cultural record from a time when the Lenape community was on
its journey from the Mid-Atlantic toward the west. Rementer's extensive
introductory material puts in context the historical forces that went into
producing this text, with a biography of Captain Pipe, one of Trowbridge's
main Indian informants. Contributions by Lenape scholar Bruce Pearson and
Timothy Crumrin round out the picture with biographies of Trowbridge himself
and William Conner.[image: Offer]
