This database includes all lexical entries from the extant transcribed and translated monologic narratives recorded in Southern Pomo. All but one of these come from Halpern’s archived notes at the Survey of California and Other Indian Languages at the University of California at Berkeley. One of these texts is from Oswalt (1978). Please see Walker (2013) for a detailed description of Southern Pomo and a full explanation of extant sources.
