MA 4.5

All say to Beautiful Head, "Be thou chief."
The (first) selected judge (of the Lenape) had RED HAIR!

2/25/14         STEP 1 find WEMILO
                               Search for a page starting with WEM
3/3/14                     Found WEM page.
                                    WEM is the first three letters of the top cluster of words on page 159 of VRM volume 5.
                                     Search for WEMV5159

3/7/14            STEP 2  Find "LO,"
                              Found LOK in LITV5060-061

3/14/14    3 Find "OLA"
3/15/14           FOUND "OLA" in OLAV1137
                See DETAILS

3/19/14  4 Search for "WIL"
3/20/14       FOUND "WIL" in WEWV5160-161

3/20/14 SEARCH for "SAk"
3/24/2014 FOUND "SAK,"  actually all of SAKIMA in SAKV2128.
3/24/2014 SEARCH FOR "LIS"

  The first search to be "lucky" and find "LISV" should fail.
  The "L_" Search will result in the folders for all eight volumes.
            Fortunately there are only 14 pages in those eight files.  You need
             to look at them, one at a time.
This is a good spot to mention the vowel rule.
"Vowels are interchangeable"
I.e. a "I" vowel recorded by the Moravians might be

      an "U" vowel recorded by other translators.

3/27/2014  We could not find a word beginning with LIS.
             but we did find words starting with LUS in three places:
                      LUSV1O85, MACV7042-043, & LUSV8046-047
                       We chose the word on MACV7042-43
* Why do we find an "L" word in an "M" folder?
        Answer:  The teenagers, who scanned and filed the the images, were instructed to:
                         "Use your judgement, if the there are only a few entries of the last letter and
                            the rest of the image is mostly the next letter, use the first three letters of 
                            the next letter as the title of the image.

                             In this case, it is better to search for the last bit of "L" under "M"
                              than to search for nearly two pages of "M" under "L."

Actually we are finished searching for Lenape words.  You can try to find a better "MA" word, if you want to practice searching, but we have already found the best "MA" word.   "MADH" in the "SAKUMOW"  detail appears to mean "MAN."  Let us use that definition.

Sounds =                 Wemi          
Lenape  =                Wemi    VRM Vol 5, page. 159
Old Norse =             Hveim
Norse/English =       All

Sounds =           ...lo 
Lenape  =          lok       VRM Vol.  5 page 60   1.
Old Norse =       lag-ligr
Norse/English = proper
1.  Rafinesque apparently divided the word "lok" because he was familiar with "O-K" as a two syllable affirmation of agreement.   The "K" of the second sound should be moved to the end of the first sound.

Sounds =                 ola          
Lenape  =                ola   VRM Vol. 1 page 137
Old Norse =             vera
Norse/English =       to be

Sounds =             wil
Lenape  =            wil VRM Vol. 5, page 160.
Old Norse =        hvirfill 
Norse/English =  head

Sounds =                  sakima      
Lenape  =                sakumow    VRM Vol. 2 page 128.
Old Norse =            saka madh
Norse/English =      judge

Sounds =                 lissil  
Lenape  =                lussin  VRM  Vol. 7 page 42  1.
Old Norse =            glossa
Norse/English =     glow      2.
1.  "l" and "n" are both "soft" consonants. One is often written down when the other was said.
     "n" often appears where "a" used to be.
2.  Note the comparison between Old Norse "glossa" and English "glow."  Lenape and English both had Old Norse roots.
Sounds =                 ma    
Lenape  =                mow   VRM Vol 2 page 128 A.
Old Norse =            madh
Norse/English =      man
1.  MADR means MAN in the SAKUMOW definition above.

_ _ _Finished with searching for LENAPE words, which match the original recorded sound._ _ _

Alliterations "-", Rhyme '-'  Both "'_'"


"We" mi lok o la "wil"

"sak" u "mow" lus "sin" "ma"

Aliteration = 3/2
Rhyme = 0
Total = 3/4 = May be

"Hveim" li 'gr' 'ver' a '"hvir"'

"fill"* "sak" 'a' madh glos '"sa"' 

*"f" may have sounded like "hv"
This "madh" may have been added by the Lenape Historian or the Moravians.
Aliteration = 3/2
Rhyme = 2/2 + 1 extra word
Total 5/4 + = More than OK.

The Drottkvaett analysis indicates the stanza was created by someone speaking Old Norse.
As the generations passed the Lenape speakers modified the sounds.  They made the sounds shorter.
So when the Moravians recorded the sounds, the Lenape sounds did not have the second line key and they also lost all of the rhymes.

The Lenape of the 19th century were repeating memorized stanzas, but were not aware that the sounds should have a specified number of aliterations and rhymes.
