Navajo Language Review, Vol. 1, No. 1.
Platero, Paul R., Ed.
The purpose of this journal is to provide useful exchange of information among Navajo teachers. The articles in this issue deal with Navajo linguistics. Kenneth Hale and Paul Platero present an analysis of the relative clause in Navajo. Part 1 analyzes relativization forms and formulates structural descriptions for relativization rules, with reference to pronominalization rules. Part 2 presents arguments supporting the view that relativization and pronominalization are different processes, and that relativization is a raising rule. Mary Helen Creamer discusses the Navajo subject-object inversion, and the rank grouping of nouns is discussed as it relates to sentence structure. The third article, by Libby Jayne Becenti and Delphine Chee, is a discussion of the articulatory characteristics that define the phonological segments of Navajo. (AM)
