Abstract

The sound waves from a phonograph record of a Tlingit Indian's speech were photographed on the Metfessel strobo-photograph. The curves on the strobo-photograph film were traced onto a reduced musical-scale chart by means of an especially designed transcribing machine. The analysis, which was limited to the frequency of vibration and duration of the sounds, was made under two main headings: (1) intervals, and (2) intonations.
