  1. I added a comment to the original article – looks like ‘alakachik’ was a widely used word in SW OR. I found it in Harrington’s notes in interview with some Siuslaw and Coos speakers. It’s also used in Orville Dodge’s 1899 history of Coos County.

    I’d also love to know where those drawings are Chase made! Or if they still exist. They weren’t reprinted in that article. 🙁

      1. Hm. Now I am thinking I ought to get around to writing something about the words for dentalium in the Coos Bay & Siuslaw languages…
