Hočąk Text — Worúxega

Narrated by R. W.

Translation based on the Interlinear Text of Paul Radin


English Translation


The manuscript, which is in the hand of Paul Radin, is sometimes difficult to read. Every attempt has been made to check the text against other texts and word lists, but in cases where the reading is doubtful, question marks appear after illegible letters. About 40% of the hand written interlinear text has no English translation, but almost all of the untranslated words could be found elsewhere. Radin also used Greek letter 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 Greek symbols used in the text appear on the table below:

α β γ ε ɜ
égi éja gają ? ésge šaną

λ נ ρ τ ϕ υ
žesge nunige ánąga žegų ?* hąké re, regi†
*explicitly stated on p. 37 [jb-D] to be aire, but this value does not work here.
†explicitly stated on p. 30 [jb-D].
