Pound, Louise. “Miscellany.” American Speech 21.3 (October 1946): 227-238.


Brief mention. See “The speech of the Croatans,” by A. R. Dunlap, on pages 231-232.  Dunlap quotes a passage from Stephen B. Weeks's 1891 article, “The Lost Colony of Roanoke,” which describes several characteristics of Lumbee speech at that time.  The characteristics include drawling the last or next-to-last syllable in every sentence; beginning salutations with “mon”; using the parasitic (glide) y in words such as cow, girl, or kind; using instead of loving; using fayther instead of father; using aks for ask; and using housen for houses.
