This single volume collects scattered fragments of the Nanticoke and Conoy dialects spoken around Chesapeake Bay. The Nanticoke materials include Jefferson's 70-word vocabulary of 1817, Frank Speck's 61-word salvage vocabulary from Six Nations Reserve 1914, and a half-dozen words of the Kickotank (Assateague) dialect from 1650. Also included are word-lists of the Conoy-Piscataway preserved from the Jesuit missions in Maryland and phrases from the 1665 deposition of Elizabeth Brumley.
