The five papers included in this volume approach the study of American Indian languages from a diverse array of methodological and theoretical approaches to linguistics. Two papers focus on approaches that come from the applied linguistics tradition, emphasizing ethnolinguistics and discourse analysis: Sonya Bird's paper "A Cross Cultural Look at Child-Stealing Witches" and Jessica P. Weinberg and Susan D. Penfield's paper "Mohave Language Planning: Where Has It Been and Where Should It Go from Here?" The other papers in the volume--"Child Acquisition of Navaho and Quechua Verb Complexes: Issues of Paradigm Learning" by Ellen Courtney and Muriel Saville-Troike; "Toward an OT Account of Yaqui Reduplication" by Jason D. Haugen; and "Critics, Scrambling and Parsing" by William Lewis--come from approaches in which the study of American Indian languages is increasingly providing important challenges to linguistic theory. References are appended at the end of each article. (KFT)
