Louisiana Place Names of Indian Origin by William A. Read

Book Description

William A. Read (1869-1962) was an internationally educated and renowned linguist whose career included 38 years as a professor of English at Louisiana State University. His writings spanned five decades and have been instrumental across a wide range of academic disciplines. Most importantly, Read devoted a good portion of his research to the meaning of place names in the southeastern United States - especially as they related to Indian word adoption by Europeans.This volume includes his three Louisiana articles combined: "Louisiana Place-Names of Indian Origin" (1927), "More Indian Place-Names in Louisiana" (1928), and "Indian Words" (1931). Joining Alabama's reprint of "Indian Place Names in Alabama" and "Florida Place Names of Indian Origin" and "Seminole Personal Names", this volume completes the republication of the southern place name writings of William A. Read.
