This work is yet another major contribution by linguist Knut Bergsland to the rich Aleut language heritage. Here Bergsland interprets 1,140 Aleut personal names from a census of men listed by island and village. The list was compiled by Captain Joseph Billings, who led a major Russian expedition to the Aleutian Islands from 1790 to 1792. Interpretation of these names gives a very intimate and vivid glimpse of ancient Aleut culture and values. Includes maps, bibliography.
Language: Unangan (Aleut) (AL09)
