Boontling : an American lingo with a dictionary of boontling
"Boontling is the name given by its speakers to a local language spoken extensively between 1880 and 1920 in Boonville, the largest town in the upper Anderson Valley of Mendocino County, California. The name itself is a typical word in the jargon. In its heyday the language was widely used by the valley's inhabitants, to the confusion of outsiders." The book includes a history of the language, vocabulary resources, names of people, names of places, phonemic reshaping, a Boontling dictionary, and more. The book also includes historic photographic images from the Boontling era.
