Collection Descriptive Notes:
At a conference conducted in 1970 on the University of Chicago campus, Eric Hamp presides over the proceedings to which numerous researchers contribute their findings on Inuit and Aleut syntax. Since "Eskimo" is no longer used, this record references two dialects of Inuit and one of Aleut in the hopes of covering most of the dialects mentioned on the tapes: Inuktitut, Kalaallisut and Aleut. (A book of the papers presented at the conference was published by the Chicago Linguistic Society in 1976.)
Collection Technical Notes:
Tapes (which are probably the live recordings) were donated to the LLA c. 1990 by EPH. [Note: Tape 3 appears to be missing, but this may be just an artifact of misnumbering.] WAVE files are converted to MP3s.
