The purpose of this study is to give a general survey of the language most commonly used on the trail, and to establish the identity of a colloquial trader speech, the product of the Santa Fe Trail and the Santa Fe trade. To accomplish this purpose, a glossary of terms is submitted, prefaced by a discussion of the language sources, and a critical survey of the characteristics of the trader speech. Necessarily, a study of this length must be more of a survey than a comprehensive treatment of the subject.
