This volume collects the extant examples of the Basque-Micmac pidgin spoken in Acadia during the early 1600s. It features over 100 words of "Souriquois" recorded by Lescarbot (1609), pidgin words from the Relation of Pierre Biard (1616), as well as the earliest recorded Algonquian: an untranslated, presumably Micmac phrase recorded by Jacques Cartier in the Bay of Chaleur in 1534.
