Hočąk Text — Resurrection of the Chief’s Daughter

narrated by Charlie N. Houghton

interlinear translation by Oliver LaMère



The text of Notebook 70 is written, apparently, with a thick pencil. It has a sloppy and crowded appearance, but the letters of the text are almost always clear and unambiguous, if rather inelegantly formed.

The header reads, "XXXVI Informant Char N. Houghton," just below which is written an underlined title, "How an Orphan Conquered Death." The title seems to have been squeezed into its place and written with a different writing implement. At the far upper right of the first page is written the numeral "52" which indicates the total number of pages in the text. At the very top of the page is scribbled at an angle with a different writing implement, "To Blings for linguistic notes," below which is written the date, "27/2 ’45." The expression "Blings" refers to the Bollingen Foundation.

The corrected text, which is found on the second line of each table, differs from the version of the Bollingen Foundation. Radin's published text is analytical and does not really reflect the rules governing the spoken language. It would be rather like removing sandhi from Sanskrit. Consequently, in a number of cases, I had to defer to the manuscript text for the more usual forms of expression. In such cases I also followed the accents presented there.

Sentences in both the MS and the Bollingen edition are numbered, although in the present text that is not followed since I have analyzed the beginning and ending of sentences somewhat differently. In the MS paragraph numbers were inserted (but omitted in this text).

The transliteration conventions in the MS predate those finally settled on by Radin, which marks this as a relatively early text. Most conspicuously, /o/ is often used in place of /a/, and hižą, "one," is written as hižoⁿ; the older convention of using /sh/ instead of the later /c/ is seen in -šguni, which is here written as shguni; also /eⁿ/ occurs frequently, even though it is neither a phoneme nor an allophone in Hočąk.

Anything within brackets, [ ], has been supplied by the editor (Richard Dieterle), unless otherwise indicated.

*this word is inserted by a line at this point from the top of the page.
†/k/ is inserted above the line by a caret just before djegi.
‡the Bollingen text has -wawat’èhikadjèga.
‡‡the MS translation has "she gave to him," which make less sense, especially if we have the usual subject-last construction prevalent in story telling.

* < hi-hųk-hiwį-ra.
†someone has written above these words, "chieftainess." However, this is extremely misleading, as no authority is imputed to a chief's daughter by virtue of her birth.
‡the parenthetical material is in the text written below the English line.

 


 

p. 4 —

*this word occurs at the bottom of the page and is inserted by means of footnote 1.
†a /k/ occurred before the /x/ but was crossed out.
‡"shguni" is inserted above the line by a caret. It is written in small letters by a different writing implement.

higitcgáxnisgejé hagaíra higúⁿ hikípágashgé.† hinajítcjéji‡
higičgáxnisgèže. Hagaíra higų́ hikipágašge. Hįražičžéži.
she tried to throw herself in his way. Sometimes [indeed]* she would meet him. To tease her she wished.‡‡
*the MS translation has "(she?)".
†the final /g/ overprints a /k/.
‡the first /je/ overprints something that can no longer be read.
‡‡the translation has "to tease me she wished." The suffix -žeži means "to yearn intensely"; however -žeži/-šeži is also the optative. The Hočąk does not express "me". Hiražitc means "to practice the joking relationship."

 


 

higúⁿ hit’éra hijáⁿ hįgánuga† hinúk’ána
"Higų́ hit’éra hižą́ hįgánąga‡ hinųkóną,"
"Then* word a he says to me [and] court make,"
*"now" is crossed out and "then" written above it. However, the standard "just" seems to be a more appropriate translation.
†the single expression hit’érajiⁿ´gánuga is replaced in very small superscriptions by the more articulated, hit’éra hijaⁿ´ hiⁿgánuga.
higánąga (< hige-anąga) means, "he says to him, and"; hįgánąga (< hį-hige-anąga) means "he says to me, and".

 


 

nisgejéje korá! egí hiregáshge hotcintcínik’djéga
nisgežéži. Kora! egi hiregášge. Hočįčį́nįkjega
like(ness) [that she yearned].* Kora! [and] she thought of him often.† The boy
*the parenthetical addition of "(ness)" is in the text. Nisge means "like that" and -žeži means "to yearn intensely."
†the text has "she wished for him often."

 


 

hirudjísdjindjánuga higúⁿ huⁿkagá wajóⁿ hokit’akereníje
hirujísjįjánąga higų́ hąkagá wažą hokit’akerenìže.
was quite young and [yet]* never something talked he not to her.
*the translation has "then".

 


 

egishgé hishgé jegúⁿ hinúgenik’djegá rukónunísgek’djérashgé†
Egíšge hišgé žegų hinų́genįkjegá rukónonisgekjèrašge.
And (she on the other hand)* also then the girl court (indirectly) if she would.‡
*the parenthetical material was inserted by the translator.
†an initial /ru/ is written in smaller letters just to the left and above the /k/ in kónunísgek’djérashge.
‡"indirectly" is inserted above the Hočąk line in parentheses. An earlier parenthetical qualification after the word "court" has been crossed out.

 


 

p. 5 —

very much she was.* Now thus they were. [Finally] ho! really
*"exceedingly" is written in very small letters below the word "much".
†the Bollingen text has higųsgéxdjį.

 


 

wánoína jesgégijí* jéguⁿ hakíjuk’djé iagék’dje

her mind it was that way. "Now I'll marry him; I'll ask him,"‡
*this is followed by the word jeguⁿ´gaho, which is crossed out.
†the Bollingen text has yagékdge, which is certainly a misprint.
‡"ask" follows the word "tell" which has been crossed out.

 


 

Bol. p. 78 —
