Shuswap Grammatical Structure. Working Papers in Linguistics, Vol. 5, No. 5.
Gibson, James A.
This dissertation describes the grammatical structure of Shuswap, an American Indian language of the Salishan family spoken in British Columbia, Canada. The research was carried out on the Naskanlith Reserve near Chase, British Columbia, during the summers of 1966-69. Prior to this study, the language was last investigated before the turn of the century. The grammar is described in four parts: phonology, morphophonemics, morphology, and syntax. In addition to the detailed structural analysis, the author includes a preface describing the historical background of Shuswap. (Author/PM)
