Navajo Language Review, Vol. 1, No. 2.
Platero, Paul, Ed.
This issue of the Navajo Language Review consists of five papers. The first, by E. Perkins, deals with the semantics and syntax of the Navajo negation particle "hanii." In the second paper, S. Billison speaks of the need to preserve the Navajo language and culture through bilingual education programs. M. Saville-Troike studies variation and change in Southwestern Athabaskan and makes suggestions for further data collection and analysis. The fourth paper is presented first in Navaho then in English. The authors, K. Hale and L. Honie, discuss language comparisons and related languages. The final paper presents an analysis of the uses of the Navajo classifier inductively in the form of a dialogue between two friends (to be continued in the next issue). (PMP)
