Date:
undated
Scope and Contents:
The words are recorded in Department of the Interior, United States Geographical and Geological Survey of the Rocky Mountain Region, Comparative Vocabulary. They include terms of three dialects of Achomawi: Big Valley, Hot Springs, and Goose Lake. Gatschet was skeptical of the value of the manuscript: "None of these vocabularies could be revised with the help of reliable Indians of the same tribal subdivision of speaking the subdialects, and therefore must be used with discrimination . . . No. 2.. . . deserves no credit at all."
