As I noted at the time …
- Wow! 10 t0 12 hours to make an arrow: WAMPANOG.
- Hollowed log for a canoe: burning removes the sap, lightens the vessel.
- 17 English dialects (and vocabulary) … many of them hardly understandable by the others.
- Richard Pickering (aka Governor Bradford: “I’ve become my own father-in-law”).
- High literacy, both men and women – dialect and faith via the mother.
- Shakespeare / University of Lincolnshire: source of much of the research.
