A Ho-Chunk grammar textbook, 1945

Winnebago Grammar

This book began as the author's Ph.D. thesis at Columbia University in 1944, and was printed the following year. No copyright was ever registered for it, however, enabling it to be shared here. It is based on the author's fieldwork in the Ho-Chunk community at Winnebago, Nebraska. This is one of several works on American Indian languages to be found at Turning Points in Wisconsin History. Readers should note that this is a historical document rather than a modern one, and that it was produced by a white observer rather than a native speaker; students wishing to study the language should rely on materials produced by the tribal language office.
