Colville Grammatical Structure. Working Papers in Linguistics, Volume 5, Number 4.
This dissertation is a grammatical sketch of Colville, a Salishan language of eastern Washington. After an introductory chapter on language family, the phonology (consonants, stops, resonants, vowels) is outlined. The chapter on morphology discusses the basic intransitive nature of all roots and the production of transitive, middle, and intransitive bases. Further grammatical forms such as imperatives, reflexives, instrumentals, and developmentals are included. Syntactic patterns are outlined in the final chapter. (Author/DD)
