"([United States] Bureau of American Ethnology. Bulletin no. 20) The Chinook texts were translated into English literally and in free form by means of the Chinook jargon. Examination of them shows the similarity between Chinook words and jargon words." -- Lowther, B. J., & Laing, M. (1968). A bibliography of British Columbia: Laying the foundations, 1849-1899. Victoria, BC: University of Victoria, p. 122.
