Timeline
Learn about memorable moments in the evolution of Michael E. Krauss
    FIFTIES
  • 1991
    Age 56
    With his 1991 address to the Linguistic Society of America, Krauss was among the first to create an awareness of the global problem of endangered languages.
    More Details Hide Details He has since worked to encourage the documentation and re-vitalization of endangered languages across the world.
  • TWENTIES
  • 1963
    Age 28
    Although Krauss immediately communicated this new information to Hoijer, it was not incorporated into Hoijer's major Athabaskan monograph, printed in 1963.
    More Details Hide Details The Minto data did appear in a series of IJAL articles by Krauss in the mid to late 1960s, but it was some time before the existence of an additional Proto-Athabaskan affricate series became widely known. Krauss' largest contribution to language documentation is his work on Eyak, conducted through much of the 1960s. Eyak was then already the most endangered of the Alaskan languages, and Krauss' work is all the more notable considering that it represents what today might be considered salvage linguistics. While some Eyak data had been previously available, they were overlooked by previous scholars, including Edward Sapir. However, Eyak proved to be a crucial missing link for historical linguistics, being equally closely related to neighboring Ahtna and to distant Navajo. With good Eyak data it became possible to establish the existence of the Athabaskan–Eyak–Tlingit language family, though phonological evidence for links to Haida remained elusive. Further, the system of vowel modifications present in Eyak inspired Krauss' theory of Athabaskan tonogenesis, whereby tone develops from vowel constriction.
  • 1960
    Age 25
    After completing a dissertation on Gaelic languages Krauss arrived in Alaska in 1960 to teach French at the University of Alaska.
    More Details Hide Details But Krauss was clearly aware of and interested in the indigenous languages of Alaska prior to his arrival. In fact, while en route to Alaska he visited Harry Hoijer, the leading scholar of Athabaskan languages at the time. Arriving in Alaska he became immediately aware of the dire situation of the indigenous languages of Alaska and quickly turned his attention to documenting those languages, focusing initially on the (Lower) Tanana language. This turned out to be quite fortuitous for scholars of Athabaskan comparative linguistics, as Lower Tanana nicely demonstrated a split in the Proto-Athabaskan *ts- series which was not evidenced in Hoijer's data.
    Krauss, professor emeritus, joined the faculty of the University of Alaska Fairbanks in 1960 and served as director of the Alaska Native Language Center from its inception in 1972 until his retirement in June 2000.
    More Details Hide Details He remains active in efforts to document Alaska's Native languages and encouraged awareness of the global problem of endangered languages. Krauss received a B.A. from University of Chicago (1952); M.A. from Columbia University, (1954); and Ph.D. from Harvard University (1959) Krauss conducted fieldwork with Gaelic in Western Ireland (1956–1958) Krauss conducted fieldwork with Norse languages in Iceland and in the Faroe Islands (1958–1960).
