Jack Martin


Jack B. Martin is a Professor of English and Linguistics at the College of William and Mary. His specialty is the Native languages of the American South, especially Creek (or Muskogee), Miccosukee, Koasati, and Choctaw. He likes to combine language documentation (textbooks, dictionaries, texts) with language revitalization (teacher training, materials development, and lots of games!).

Some of Martin’s publications include A Dictionary of Creek/Muskogee (with Margaret Mauldin), Totkv Mocvse/New Fire: Creek Folktales (edited with Margaret Mauldin and Juanita McGirt), and A Reference Grammar of Creek (Muskogee). He is currently assisting the Choctaw Nation with a new dictionary. He is also working with the Seminole Nation to develop materials for a new immersion school.
