Scope and Contents
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."
