Abstract

In the light of Bob Rankin’s Dhegiha work, this paper examines some of the earliest recorded material on Kanza and Osage, collected and transcribed by the naturalist Samuel Stehman Haldeman in an alphabet of his own devising (Haldeman 1859; 1860). Although his transcriptions fail to capture many crucial phonetic and phonemic distinctions, they are useful as records of earlier and more conservative forms of these languages.
