Title [Eyak lexicon; statistical studies]
Description:Ts. 16pp + 80 cards. Computer printout and cards, program graphs, worksheets and cards determining the asymptote of the curve, plotted for 80 points, on the rate of how Eyak lexicon accumulated in the text corpus as concordance of the text was being made (asymptote of 881.9 morphemes).
As M. Krauss compiled the texts he kept track of new stems as they appeared. S. Harbo, a statistician computed the asymptote. The asymptote represents the number of stems that would be found after an infinite number of pages of texts were analyzed. While using elicitation combined with texts M. Krauss came up with more than 1000 stems.
Done with assistance of Samuel J. Harbo.
