So it turns out my copy of one of Jacobs’ notebooks was missing a bunch of pages (bad initial photocopy). Troy Anderson helped me out & shared his complete notebook copy and a few other fun things like some of Jacobs’ word and grammar slip files (thanks Troy!). I’ve already found a couple of ‘new’ nouns to add to the wordlist.
One is a word for twins, which is ts’ilkin (stress on 1st syllable) in both Hanis and Milluk. Womb (uterus) is ma’láqmalq in Hanis, maqmálq in Milluk.
I’ve found a fun new verb too (by fun I mean Weird & Vaguely Horrifying and Not Likely To Be Used in Daily Conversation) but I’ll save that one for tomorrow’s post.
