Timothy Montler

Timothy Montler is an American academic and linguist. Montler is a professor of linguistics at the University of North Texas, as of 2013.[1][2] He has worked to preserve the Klallam language since 1990.[3]

Montler collaborated with Adeline Smith, a Lower Elwha Klallam Tribe elder, to create the first Klallam language alphabet.[1] He and Smith also composed the world's first Klallam language dictionary, which was published in December 2012 by the University of Washington Press.[1][2] Montler and Smith had collaborated on the Klallam lexicon throughout the 1990s, 2000-02, and early 2010s.[2] Adeline Smith added 12,000 words and phrases, the largest single contribution to the dictionary.[1][2] Montler also worked closely with other Native Klallam speakers, including Hazel Sampson, Ed Sampson, and Bea Charles.[3]
