Online, Interactive Database of Historic Native
American Vocabularies and Word Lists
The Interactive ALR is a powerful online resource for the comparative study of Native American languages. Built from the ever-expanding catalog of our American Language Reprint (ALR) series, The Interactive ALR puts a growing 12,000 word linguistic database and powerful search capabilities into the hands of scholars, allowing for comparison of dozens of historical vocabularies in the blink of an eye. Representing 400 years of linguistic data, and over 40 languages scattered throughout more than 70 different documents, the database brings together a collection of information that has never before been so readily accessible in either book or electronic form.
In order to make this data more readily available to the general public, most functions of The Interactive ALR are FREE as of September 1, 2006, including:
