Hočąk Text — Twins Disobey Their Father, Version 2

narrated by Jasper Blowsnake


No title appears on the initial page (which is actually page 2, the first page being lost). In the upper left, a small "28" has been overprinted with a very large "27", however this latter has been crossed out by a wavey vertical line. To the left of these numbers is written in slighly larger characters, the numeral "57". To its right, near the center of the page, is written "J. Twin = J. T." (Junior Twin). Off to the right upper part of the page, which a curved line setting it off, is the following:

"Oct. 23, 1950
definitely
ϕ = gaja (?)
giži (?)

The expression "giži (?)" is crossed out with a single horizontal line.

The manuscript is in the hand of Paul Radin, the Hočąk line is written in bolder letters with a different writing implement than was used for the English lines. In general, the MS is not difficult to read. About 50% of the hand written interlinear text has no English translation, but almost all of the untranslated words could be found elsewhere. Radin also used symbolic abbreviations for common whole words or syllables some of which he interpreted here and in other manuscripts, although there are some whose values are unknown. The symbols used in the text appear on the table below:

α β γ ɜ θ λ
égi éja giži šaną žigé* žesge

*connected to this phrase by a line from the top of the page is, "i.e. a dryad". The word nočížą comes from ną, "tree, wood"; hočí, "to dwell"; and -ižą, the indefinite article; and so means, "a tree-dweller". This is certainly what in translation is called a "Wood Spirit".
