Most Proto Algonquian reconstructions published to date, and the data supporting them, are found in George F. Aubin's Proto Algonquian Dictionary (Aubin 1975). Most of the Proto Central Algonquian... More > or Proto Lake ones are found in John Hewson's Computer-Generated Dictionary of Proto Algonquian (Hewson 1993). Those I have newly reconstructed or substantively revised in the course of my linguistic paleontology are presented here. Most are the names of game animals or useful plants, but some other terms of cultural interest are included. Pseudo proto terms are so called because they're likely based on loans postdating the proto language in whose phonology they're written.< Less

In populous kin-based societies, intense competition for scarce resources may lead to very high rates of male mortality, making men unreliable as links in a living social network. This favors the... More > step by step replacement of men by women as links through which vital relationships are traced, and marriages which maintain links to a person's uterine relatives (mother's or sister's family). In such circumstances, men attempt to assert control over women in the domestic sphere in order to manipulate affinal male kinship loyalties, but in other respects the status of women tends to remain high, evidently due to the importance of women as links in the social organization, their roles as substitutes for dead men, and their roles in matridominant subsistence agriculture. These developments are exemplified in one or more of three late prehistoric Algonquian societies of the Lenapean group located on the Eastern seabord: Medial, Coastal, and Subboreal.< Less

The Thin Edge of the Sexist Wedge: Lexically reconstructed Algonquian and Quechua case histories, illustrating the original causes of sexual stratification in Neolithic society By Paul Proulx

Using information unconsciously encoded into languages, I ask "How do women + men get (or fail to get) respect within their societies?" I start with a simple prehistoric Algonquian society... More > where women gathered plant foods while men hunted, + both got approximately equal respect. Some changes in warfare, economy, + social organization over the centuries had major impacts upon the social statuses of women vs men, while others did not. I also examine the prehistoric Quechua farmers of a thousand years earlier. They developed a sophisticated agriculture using irrigated terraces, incorporated many tribes into the largest empire the world had yet seen, + then were plunged into feudal oppression by the Spanish Conquest. They are especially interesting because -- contrary to the predictions of most theories -- they have maintained an equality of the sexes typical of simple societies that gather + hunt. I also discuss Proto Indo European society, sex gender, + the origin of matrilineal organization.< Less

My research suggests that in simple societies whose politics are all kin based, the kinship terminology serves as an oral constitution, amendments to which involve new terms with pertinent etymologies.
