*the "rior" of "warrior" was heavily crossed out with ink in the translation.

Ai ni Ks. Ki rAK so Ko noKo Ai se de. tomo.

the son in two to break him they did. Ringing sound*

*tom, it would seem, is an attempt to imitate the sound of metal being struck (rather like a gong), rather than an unattested word meaning, "ringing sound".

 


 

p. 16 —

a tti Ke se de. mr. so ttiAi wi de. so Ko no Ki di. wo so Ko noKi se.

disappeared they became all at once.* And the village they went into.

*in the first typed translation draft of Winnebago IV, #7n, page 2, sentence 15, the original read, "When he broke him the one that broke him, when they went they did not know of them. Disappointed they became all at once and (16) ..." This misreads "disappointed" for "disappeared" (xawanį́), even though both the Hočąk and English in Notebook 49 are very clear, and this meaning for xawanį́ is very well attested. As a consequence, he crossed out words in the translation so that it then read, "Then he broke him. Impatient they became all at once and (16) ..." This is further redacted in the final draft of Winnebago IV, #82, page 2, sentence 15, which now reads, "Impatient they all became at once and (16) ..." Needless to say, a great deal of religious meaning was lost in this process.
†a hapaxlegomenon, perhaps from the root ži, "present there" (Marino), ho-hi-ži-že, where ho- is "the place where", and hi is "he went".
