ffrX PREFACE.
The first attempt at publication of a vocabulary
of the trappers' and traders' Indian Jargon in use
among the coast and interior tribes of the Northwest, was made by John Jew«Vct, a sailor who was
captured from the English ship Boston, which was
surprised by Indians at Nootka Sound, her captain
and crew murdered—the s&iloj. who issued his adventures under the title. 'The Captive in Nootka,"
being the only survivor.
Jewett naer no means of writing while among
the Indians, and the eighty or more words he records were writTer. from memory, presumably, 5 to
10 years after his escape, WUIch occurred in 1805,
the book referred to being printed in Middletown,
Conn.,  1815.
The British explorers Cook, Meares and Vancouver, record a few words spoken by savages encountered during their voyages in the waters of the
Oregon coast.
These early records prove that the same words,
or derivatives now incorporated in the Chinook Jargon,   retain  their old significance.
Several little books, mostly for trader's use, have
been printed in this jargon. Some were intended
for the special use of missions and missionaries;
some as interesting additions to philology. Among
the men who have written the vocabularies and
best treatises on the Jargon maybe named: George
Gibbs, St. Onge, Tate, Good. Winthrop, Swan, Hale,
and Rev. Dr. Eells. The latter translated into
Chinook a number of hymns, which were published
in Portland, 1889, and are .still extant. A complete
Bibliography of the Chinook was prepared by Mr.
James C. Pilling (1889) and published by the Bureau of Ethnology,  Smithsonian Institution.
The language of the native Indian is seldom
heard. The progressive English is forcing its way
even into the lodges of the most savage tribes, and
many of the original Indian dialects of the coast,
of which Chinook was the most important, have disappeared entirely, with the nations that spoke
them.
Of the ancient language of the Chinooks about
three hundred words are given in the present die- tionary, the remainder being words from other
coast languages; Yakima, Wasco, Nez Perce and
other tongues.
It is a remarkable fact that the Indian tribes,
occupying so small a territory, and compelled to
traffic, travel, make war and carry on such intercourse as their nomadic life required, spoke languages as different as the modern Spanish is from
English. These languages were almost as numerous as the tribes themselves. In the strip of territory from the mouth of the Willamette to the
ocean, at least five different languages were spoken,
the Wahkiakum, Cowlitz, Multnomah and other
tribes using among themselves only their own tribal
language; „but in voyages along the rivers or in
hunting parties in the mountains, the Wasco Indian who happened to meet the Clatsop—one from
the mouth of the Columbia and the other from
central Oregon, made himself perfectly understood
in this accommodating jargon, which was in use
from the Cascade Mountains to the Pacific as a trading language, and widely along the coast.
With the coming of the white man, making
known to the Indian the weapons, the luxuries and
the vices of civilization, came the need of extending
the Chinook to cover these new conditions. He
could not say "carbine" so the word became "cal-
ipeen." The Canadians called the hand "le main,"
and the Indian came at last to use nearly the 'same
sound. Thus English and French words were
grafted   upon   the   Chinook   jargon.
When our firm purchased Mccormick's Chinook Dictionary there was no uniform method in writing the jargon.
The present vocabulary was entirely revised and corrected by a gentleman familiar with Chinook and
other Indian languages from boyhood, and the publishers, who have sold thousands of previous editions, confidently recommend this little book as the
ne plus ultra of Chinook dictionaries.
JOHN GILL.
Portland, Oregon, Sept. 1, 1902. EXPLANATORY SUGGESTIONS.
Tribes from different regions of country made
slightly different use of the Chinook and varied its
pronunciation slightly.
The phonetic spelling, accents, etc., of this edition give the most generally accepted form of Chinook as used by old pioneers and the Indians themselves.
The examples of conversation given in the appendix will show that the "grammar" of the jargon was very deficient.
The aboriginal pronunciation of the Chinook
can only be thoroughly learned by conversation
with the Indians, whose deep gutturals and long-
drawn vowels are beyond .he power of our alphabet
to represent. Most of their words are unaccented,
the stress of voice falling upon the emphatic word
of a sentence rather than upon particular syllables.
As far as possiole the present edition represents by
accents and marked vowels the exact sounds.
A final, as in wa-wa, klat-a-wa, and similar
words, has usually the. sound of aw. Ah is pronounced either as ah or as o in not, the pronunciation varying slightly among different tribes. E
long and the short sound of I are nearly identical
in Chinook, except fin e or ee, which have the
same value as in English.
O and u are pronounced as in similar English
syllables, except where marked otherwise.
K is the most difficult sound to represent and
pronounce in the Indian vocabulary. The nearest
representation of the sound is in the gh or ch in
the words loch, as used in Scotland, and the German ich. (
A brief use of the Dictionary, with the aid of any
person who has a reasonable knowledge of the jargon, will render any student of the Chinook all
necessary aid to a proper understanding and fluent
use of the language.
In the twelfth edition of this Dictionary we added a small Appendix of necessary words which
had been omitted from the earlier issues. This
Appendix forms a part of the present book. (See
page 61.)
There are no grammatical rules, or next to none,
in the jargon. Por example, "le-doo" means either
finger or fingers, "le-moo-to" a sheep or a number
of sheep.
A shift is made to express the comparison of
adjectives, as: "kloshe," good; "weght kloshe,"
better, or literally more good, "elip kloshe," best.

The examples given illustrate the use of many of the words
in the vocabulary. The absence of the article and poverty of
the minor parts of speech make the combination of words in
sentences abrupt and harsh. The iollowing attempt at representation in Chinook of the best known words in the English
language shows the lack of adaptation of Chinook to any use
but that of simplest conversation and trading purposes. The "L
